standalone gmail notifier

Hi there everyone,

This is my first post, I hope it's in the right place. I have some limited arduino/micocontroller experience, but I am looking for a bit of help with my next project. I would like to create a gmail notifier that can use the arduino ethernet shield to ask for the number of unread e-mail instead of a script running on a computer that would pass the info to the arduino.

I'm not looking to be spoon fed anything but if anyone could point to a source of information that would help me write the code to have the arduino ask gmail for the information through the ethernet shield it would be very helpful.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:
