It looks like a nice program but it's a bit heavyweight.  It requires
that I install Gnome.  I'd like something that requires only XFCE/GTk.

I guess I'll write my own.  PyGTK is pretty straight-forward. The only
mailbox type I need support for is IMAP, and Python has a nice library
(imaplib2) that supports IDLE.
