An alternate solution if you want to be able to manage your email using all of the gmail specific features would be to use their API:

   https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/v1/reference/ <https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/v1/reference/>

In which case, you might want to take a look at REST::Client.
