I need to fetch emails from a gmail account.  I found code to work with the Google API that is supposed to do this, but after an entire week of trying to hire a programmer to get this set up, I have not found anyone who can do.  So, I will not consider a 3rd-party piece of software.  Any recommendations?

I could have gmail go to Outlook, and I would have this done in a few hours, but client refuses to have anything to do with Microsoft.  I found this nice solution, but cannot find anyone who can set it up.

"client refuses to have anything to do with Microsoft" "ail-messages-via-cdo-in-vba-excel" isn't this a contradiction..

David,
I was able to get him to use excel.  It was not easy.
What due you think of that Excel-REST application?  Is it really that hard to hook-up?  I would think someone with REST skills could have that going in an hour.
