To start out some testing, for inc I'd do something like:

% inc -host pop.gmail.com -port 995 -initialtls -sasl -user address@hidden

If it is all working right, you should get a prompt asking you for a password
and that's where you enter "foobar".  (Let's not muddy the waters with
putting the password in a file right now).

For send it is probably something like:

send -server smtp.gmail.com -port 587 -tls -sasl -user address@hidden

Again, should ask you for a password if things go right.

If things go WRONG, then add "-snoop" to the above lines and post the output.

Don't do anything with mhlogin at this time.
