    Has anyone written any Ruby code for accessing their gmail account that
    they would be willing to share?

    Here are the requirements according to google:

    pop.gmail.com
    Use SSL: Yes
    Port: 995

    ruby-core#2703 and ruby-core#2745 include patches to add ssl support to
    Net::pOP3. from the thread, it looks like it was checked in, but maybe
    into 1.9 only?

    i imagine you could use the patches as a guide and write a small wrapper
    class that sets up the SSLSocket to gmail...
