- sign in to google talk (I can't it just force-closes the app)
- clear the cache on various applications (doesn't help)
- roll-back the update to the market app (doesn't help)
- switch to "2g only" mode (there is no 2g coverage for TELUS phones in Canada)
- switch to wifi (doesn't help)
- toggle airplane mode (doesn't help)
- reboot phone (doesn't help)
- change google account password (doesn't help)
- switch to googlemail instead of gmail (google doesn't give me the option)
- factory reset phone (every single person who has reported trying this has been left with a wiped phone and the problem still there, so I won't risk my apps for this)

Anyone have a solution NOT on the list?
I had exactly the same problem with my galaxy which worked fine initially. Tried all in your list except factory reset. I connected the phone to Kies and upgraded to latest s/w (2.2) and all sorted. Though I did lose my 3g connection there are lots of threads to show you how to reset your APN details very quickly.
