I want to display my Google Apps mails on my website homepage, in a google gadget. So, I want to fetch all mails of my google apps account using javaScript. Is there any way to access mails ?

Google doesn't support any special API for the GMail. All you can do is to enable POP/IMAP from the settings and taking it over from there it whatever language you want.

  • Can I use MIME ?

  • @Sarang MIME is not a protocol.

  • Ya. But, however, I need not to enable POP/IMAP. Some iGoogle Gadgets fetched gmail & show on iGOogle Page. Then how do we do this with our personal domain mails without enabling POP/Imap ?

I believe Google has a Gmail gadget for your iGoogle page available at this link - http://www.google.com/ig/adde?moduleurl=builtin_gmail.xml&source=imag

you can also search for gadgets with the term "check email"

Be warned, that there might be some unscrupulous / malicious code out there.

Ideally, if it's only notification you want, use official notifiers from service providers or an offline client. Preferably, one that connects securely.

  • That is for Gmail. Sorry, for that I forget to mention regarding Gadget of personal mail domain.

  • Is your personal domain powered by Google Apps?

  • It is not only the notification. But, I want to show last 10 mails gadget (with From : Subject & on clicking, it will open Domail mail) on the Homepage.

You could simply embed http://m.gmail.com in an iframe. Gmail also offers RSS feeds, but only for unread mail and it's a password-protected feed.
