My System Specs

Default iGoogle Gmail app no longer working?

Anybody else run into this??? Seems like it happens from time to time, and is apparently fixed by using the google.com site rather than the google.ca.

Guess they're not interested in promoting their igoogle portal page as I'll just set my homepage to gmail and drop the igoogle all together.

Yeah I'm not too sure why either. My homepage is set to iGoogle

When it stops working though, it says it doesn't support HTTPS and to disable that in the Gmail settings. However I'd rather not do so since it normally works.

I really only get a message from time-to-time regarding re-entry of my password.

Are you using the .ca website or the .com? It's apparently only the non US sites that have the issue. All of my PCs have reported "information not available" for the last week. I've tried different email apps and they all report the same problem.

Like I said, no biggie for me, I'm just switching my PCs' home pages to gmail rather than using the iGoogle app, but you'd think they'd fix the issue if they want to make money off of their portal page.

I've just always been using the US version. I started doing it back in the day when they used to have the Canadian version on an older version of the page than the US site.

Dunno what button they pressed, or if it's related to the most recent IE update, but it's back to working on the .ca site again.
