I was able to build a version of Qtopia with openssl turned on, I had to edit the configure file as 
it was explicitly turning it off), I add -ssl to the configure, and had to copy the libssl library 
to the toolchain.

Anyway after installing the build I was able to select SSL encryption in the gmail account settings 
and receive my mail from gmail.

So it is possible. I can put the relevant files up somewhere if anyone needs them. Thats presuming 
you don;t need the entire build, just the new qtmail app and the libssl stuff.

I have to check that everything else still works though, it does seem GSM may not have been built
