I believe i recently added to that error message '(this may mean you
need to enable plaintext authentication)', so that should at least

Regarding plaintext authentication, there are a couple of things we
could do to make it work:
- Make the 'Allow plaintext auth' a combobox with the following
options: Never, Always, Over an encrypted connection, and make 'over
an encrypted connection' the default. I'm not sure if this is 'secure'
enough as a default.
- Add a warning 'your server only supports plaintext authentication,
do you want to enable this?' with the optional 'don't ask me again for
this account' checkbox. We could add to the message whether or not the
connection is entrypted. This is probably the right thing to do.
However, this is harder to code
Regarding making Jabber connect to Google by default, we could also
implement GOOGLE-TOKEN, as it is documented on their webpage i
believe. This may even be the easiest thing to code, provided that Qt
allows us to do https (which they should provide in the next Qt
release i believe).
