mail-notification supports gmail separately without going through pop3
or imap. If you want the tarball you can get it from
sudo apt-get build-dep mail-notification This will grab most of the
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev This will grab the necessary files
to enable ssl support.
then the usual ./configure && make followed by sudo make install
You have to log out and back in again for it to work otherwise you get
an error message.
