IMAP is supported using Simon Bell's Mail V
<http://homepage.mac.com/simonbell/mailv/index.html>, but the problem
lies in the lack of SSL support under Newton OS. Unfortunately, GMail
requires SSL for both receiving (IMAP or POP) & sending (SMTP).

I have not explored the alternatives much, but I believe you'd have to
forward your Gmail account (or set up a rule to forward select
messages) to a POP or IMAP account that doesn't require SSL. I believe
<http://fastmail.fm/> still supports non-SSL connections, although
it's not advised.
