Hi Jim,

I was going to suggest enabling Gmail's POP access and using my POP
library to get the emails, but after checking, I see Gmail's POP uses
SSL on port 995 which my library does not do.

However you can set up Gmail to forward all emails to another address
and if you use one with standard POP access, then you can certainly
use my POP library as the basis for an email reader. You can download
the library and a sample stack from <http://www.troz.net/rev/>.

Cheers,
Sarah
