On startup, when connecting for the first time with gmail.com, sylpheed
shows a dialog to confirm if you want to continue. After confirming, you
can then check mail without problem till the next time you run sylpheed.

If you want to avoid the initial dialog, you can follow the procedure
documented on this page:


It is possible that your distribution installed these certificates
automatically, but someone installing sylpheed will need them.

On the other hand, now gmail.com is acting up completely, and I had to
disable the account, as sylpheed hangs (at the same point) just on
