This indicates that a possible workaround for MailMate is to wait longer 
between retries before reporting it as an error (but it's an annoying 
workaround, because it's non-deterministic).

It also indicates that MailMate is not to blame, but that doesn't really 
solve the problem.

It might be a limit on how many logins can be done within a certain time

I'm not sure either, but they do indicate that the problem is unlikely 
to be that MailMate generates a bad request as reported by Google.
