    Default Mail notifications through Qt on Linux

    I want to write a program which would show a pop up if a new mail arrives through Gmail.

    What library/api am I supposed to use get notifications from Gmail programmatically?

    Most likely Google exposes some REST API. If not, you'll need an IMAP/POP3 client library to connect to Gmail servers directly (provided that the mailbox you want to connect to has IMAP/POP3 activated in its settings).

    Edit: https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
