No, an option to show KCheckGMail in Konqueror tray instead in system tray. :-)

Very nice app, but the program can't login to gmail because it changes my password, any idea why is this happening?

Latest version should be used, and here's some information about why only three characters are displayed instead of the password: http://kcheckgmail.sourceforge.net/help.html#3CharsPassword

in the Behavior section, for Browser i can actually select them both. it seems it's not acting like a normal radio button should where only 1 can be selected at a time.

Hi. firstly I think it is a great application but I tried to run it once from a shell so as to see why it is not connecting and I saw in the log my username and my password in plain text. I think you should check that. I use kubuntu 7.04

When you run ./configure set the --disable-debug option, that will do it.

Personally I don't understand the purpose of this app at all. Gmail supports both pop and imap, why not use these standards to check email?

There are plenty of email checkers that can also check email from gmail in addition to other email servers. But what I'd like to see is one with proper imap-idle protocol implementation.

It is designed from the ground to only work with gmail accounts.
More customisations will be added in future versions, which are absolutely specific to gmail.

Whatever passwd I enter in kcheckgmail config, it'll be cut off at the third character, so I can't use it.
I don't use kwalletmanager.

Oh, sorry, I haven't read that.
But I'm still unable to login, doesn't matter if I write nickname@gmail.com or just nickname. My password contains two symbols, maybe that's the problem?

it would be wonderful if kcheckgmail had a "mark as read" option for every new message, or at least a "mark all as read" one, as checkgmail has

thanks

A similar request has already been reported in the features tracker[1].

It is very likely in the road to 0.6.0 this feature will be added, but as I can't really say when it is assigned to version 0.6.0.

At the moment I don't have very much time, but I've noticed that it has something to do with the regular expressions being used to parse the information.

It's all I can say for now. If it happens I find a solution, or somebody finds it, I'll immediately upload a new minor version.

I'm using KCheckGMail on Kubuntu 7.04 with polish language setting. It seems to me that KCheckGMail has problems with polish chars, because they're not displayed correctly. Can You please check it? (All the rest of my system displays polish characters properly.)

What version are you using?
The problem with the polish translation was fixed before releasing 0.5.6.
By the way, the Polish translation is now fully updated for 0.5.6 and available here: http://kcheckgmail.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*/kcheckgmail/kcheckgmail/po/pl.po?revision=1.6
