for imap I have the following in my .emacs which seems to work. However it does 
not work until you tell google not to block less secure log in attempts. First 
time use, you get a gmail from google with instructions on how to do that.

;; Start GNUS
    (require 'gnus)
    (add-to-list 'load-path
(require 'starttls)
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnimap "gmail"
                                  (nnimap-address "")
                                  (nnimap-server-port 993)
                                  (nnimap-stream ssl)))

(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it
      smtpmail-starttls-credentials '(("" 25 nil nil))
      smtpmail-auth-credentials '(("" 25 
"" nil))
      smtpmail-default-smtp-server ""
      smtpmail-smtp-server ""
      smtpmail-smtp-service 25
      smtpmail-local-domain "")
;; End GNUS
