I'm a bit surprised - a few hours ago the app logged in (with the same access data as before.. they were surely proper) and worked, but now the problem has come back - again I see
"Login failed, try again".
When it comes to a firewall, I use ZoneAlarm - without any special settings. I don't know anything about proxies.
I can login to my Google account - including Gmail and Reader - via Internet Explorer without any problem.
So I would be grateful for sending me this testing version. Do you need my e-mail address?
