I was surprised Gmail support hadn't been requested
yet. It would be a windfall for this plugin and its users.

    Just a note for the developer on this -- you might want to check out the
    libgmail python library if you are going to include gmail, since it already
    has the capability to have a proxy server going on OS X and therefore
    the ability to access your gmail through Mail.app. It would basically just
    be tossing a front end onto it.

    Developer: what price would you put on Gmail and Yahoo
    support? Maybe we can come to an agreement or start a paypal
    pot.

    Gmail's POP access is now possible through Mail.app without
    a plugin. See gmail.google.com for info.

    Gmail already supports direct POP access, which Mail natively supports.
    It would be a waste to add redundancy to the plugin. Yahoo mail support
    is a different story.

    I cannot access popmail due to a firewall(yeah it seems like something
    stupid to block), so I would still appreciate gmail support if you wanted to
    do so.
