Hi everyone,

I'm currently developing a 3rd-party app that aims to connect to the Gtalk

Everything works fine so far but one feature:
when I add a new account to my client (a freshly created Google account), it
doesn't receive 'new-mail' notifications from Google, even after having sent
the IQ query (with google:mail:notify namespace). However, if I add an older
account to my client (an account that has been previsouly connected to Gtalk
using Pidgin), it does receive the notifications from Google.

So my question is the following: is there anything special to do at first
when adding a new account? What is the way you do? Do you send a special
query to Google (in addition to the IQ query required by Google, see

Thanks in advance for replying, and thanks for your multi-platform
