I ran into this too. It turns out that Google limits you to 10 (TEN) 
simultaneous logins. I have about 30+ gmail accounts (multiple business, 
etc. etc.) but was only using about 15 with Mailmate. The limit forced 
me to rethink how I was doing things (no more throwing mud against the 
wall) and now all is well in the world again (at least my world).
