     Type:  enhancement          |       Status:  pending    
Milestone:                       |    Component:  Google Talk
  Version:  2.2.1                |   Resolution:             
 Keywords:  gmail notifications  |  
Changes (by darkrain42):

  * status:  new => pending


 If I understand you correctly, you're requesting we poll for new messages
 every minute?  I'm not inclined to implement this because it's an anathema
 to the design of XMPP and the ''push'' nature of Google's mail
 notification pushes in particular.

 Are you still experiencing shoddy/inconsistent notification support? If
 so, please test by doing the following:
   * opening the debug window, filter on 'google:mail:notify'
   * disable and then enable the gmail account
   * after a minute, send yourself an email.
   * Wait about 2 minutes.

 There should be some lines that match 'google:mail:notify' right as the
 account logs in and then there should be some within a minute of your
 receiving an email message in your inbox. Please attach this filtered
 debug log.
