I do this exact thing, and it is faster than gmail itself.  With IDLE, I 
get the msg alert on my dovecot server before the web interface shows a 
new message.

Also, far more reliable, with a superior UI.

New Hampshire law forbids you to tap your feet, nod your head, or in
any way keep time to the music in a tavern, restaurant, or cafe.
