I haven't used Rmail myself (no surprise, since I am not a "real emacs
hacker") but Gnus and Wanderlust both do IMAP, handle all mailbox
formats, and are easy to set up with gmail. Personally, I found Gnus to
be slow with IMAP mailboxes and have stuck with wl.

AFAIK it's likely to be much harder to set this up with Rmail. If you
can live with the diminished kudos, give one of them a try.
