libgmail Gmail POP email checking library.

Overview

GmailX is just a 'starter' for the libgmail project. Most people find it terrifying to open that Terminal application, and actually do some hocus-pocus in it. To be honest, I was (and maybe still am) one of those persons. However, never try, never win, they say...

GmailX just starts the gmailpopd.py and gmailsmtp.py files in python, which allows to check your mail via POP3 in for example "Mail.app". However, the fact that GmailX is just a 'go between', means that the program itself doesn't affect the results you will get in your mail application. This depends entirely on libgmail and gmailpopd. With the introduction of the SMTP ability in GmailX, it is possible to send mails through your Gmail account from within your mail application.

What's new in GmailX

Version 0.1.2:
  • added SMTP support: you can now send mails through your Gmail Account from within your Mail application
  • program is now Applescript based (hopefully this will help in future to eliminate the path-problem)
  • Cleaned up the readme-file
Version 0.1.1:
  • include libgmail within the GmailX program instead of in the application folder
  • introduced .dmg format (with install and license notice)

From Google Over the next several weeks, we are introducing POP access to all of our users. To make sure the feature is fully stable, we're giving users access to POP in phases. Once POP access is available to you, a 'New Features!' link appears at the top of your account, along with a 'Forwarding and POP' tab on your 'Settings' page. This is the meaning of GmailX. As long as not everybody has POP3 access, somebody might use this program instead.

Does what it says it will, and that, along with the fact that it is free, is well worth the price. FREE

Paul, it doesn't matter if it's FREE if Google is rolling this out to everyone as part of GMail in the next couple weeks. Then it's FREE and supported by Google, where this is not.

It will cost money because Google lives of the banners.

Have you used Gmail? Have you used Google for that matter? No banners. Google lives off licensing its search technology.

There are no ads in Gmail right now, but there will be once it gets out of beta. Read Question #5: http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/about.html#ads
