I'm trying to get a list of messages from GMAIL using it's new IMAP
access.

So far I've tried running this command but it just hangs.  Any ideas?

>>> import imaplib
>>> M=imaplib.IMAP4('imap.gmail.com',993)

I figured that's the first line to run from this example:
http://docs.python.org/lib/imap4-example.html

Here are the configuration settings GMAIL says to use:

Thanks for any help.
