Right, that's basically Google trying to get people to use only email clients
they pre-approve (obviously their own is on the "we've verified that it's
secure" list).

KMail isn't the only mail client to experience this issue. I went through the
same thing with my mother-in-law's Apple Mail app a month or so ago; new
account setup failed in exactly the same way, and the workaround was exactly
the same; apparently Google demoted them too. After a few weeks Apple mail
somehow got back on the approved list and setup with GMail was easy again.

Unfortunately KDE lacks the size and market power of other email client
publishers. This may be something we need to escalate to the KDE e.V. I'll see
what I can do.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
