I’m a huge fan of CheckGmail, a small and elegant perl script to check your Gmail mailbox. This piece of software is awesome: it’s lightweight, works with KDE/Gnome/Whatever, it’s multi account, supports Gmail hosted domains, it’s multi language, etc…
But (there is always a “but” in this imperfect world) this little gem is no more actively maintained and developed 🙁
Anyway I want to use it, so I have made some little fixes to the code (you can download my currently working version here) and today I have just discovered how to use CheckGmail with the Google two step authentication: use the parameter “-no_cookies“.
# checkgmail -no_cookies
