Heh, no problem. :) I am accessing Gmail just fine using mutt and IMAP.
The problem I have now is finding a way to show the number of new
emails in my status bar like your script did so wonderfully before.
The solution that Martin Sander gave seemed adequate, but the script
failed. I'm assuming it was a typo somewhere :( I would like to start
using offlineimap too, as this seems to be the best of both worlds
(offline mail reading + supercool synchronization), but my net
connection at my house right now is crap, and downloading 500MB+ of
email is out of the question. So for now I think I'll just rely on
peeking at mutt every so often to see if I have no email. I can cope. :)
