Gkrellm mailcheck and gmail? other biffity options?
Why won't the gkrellm2 mailcheck thingy inform me of new mails on my gmail account?

And, yes, before you ask the obvious, I have enabled POP mail in gmail, and am successfully
downloading and reading messages in Thunderbird.

I passed the same parameters to gkrellm that I did to Thunderbird.
POP server: pop.gmail.com
use ssl, port 995
username
password
blah, blah...
But no flying tux, no flipping envelope...no number of new messages...no joy...

Or, if that's just hopeless, has anyone another suggestion?
I have xbiff on here, but can't quite figure out how to set it up.
xbiff -h
is rather vague.
I figure I could load that in my slit Collapse ), right there with gkrellm, and stuff.
Or, is there another good mail biff thingy for use with fluxbox?
I'm using LinguasOS,
a remaster of PCFluxboxOS.

Gkrellm was checking my mail before, from several domains...but, now I am using gmail to collect from several addresses on said several domains I own, so that I can have it all in one place, available online, and load it to various machines (laptop, main office box, etc.) via pop, etc.

Thanks
