yep, i get my gmail on the fr, via imap in qtmail on 2008.12

it's slow as hell, and the connection often times out, but it's
excellent having my e-mail with me wherever i go, and have the ability
to read whatever attachments i get sent

i'm not exactly sure what your problem is, but i can get my email over
ssl no problem. it took a bit of working out (the instructions on the
wiki were shocking, hopefully they're a bit clearer now i've done some
work on them)
