Very nice work!  I've enabled it and have been playing around with it.

I use a Google Apps account, and was pleasantly surprised that my
username and password just worked for the IMAP interface.  However,
the search results don't.  I am getting URLs like: 23877 dbera web gmail com

but for my apps account, they should be: 23877 dbera web gmail com

So I guess some configuration for Google apps accounts would be nice?

Yeah, it's pretty slow.  It seems like we could cache the headers for
certain IDs though?  So at least largely overlapping services would be
a bit quicker.
