Gnus nnimap works well.  This configuration will be an online IMAP
client without local caching:

(setq gnus-select-method
      '(nnimap "imap.gmail.com")
      message-send-mail-function 'message-smtpmail-send-it
      smtpmail-smtp-server "smtp.gmail.com"
      smtpmail-stream-type 'ssl
      smtpmail-smtp-service 465)

Then try M-x gnus to read mail.

If you want something like a Gmail-style "conversation view," you might
also add:

(setq gnus-thread-sort-functions
      '(gnus-thread-sort-by-most-recent-date)
      gnus-sort-gathered-threads-function 'gnus-thread-sort-by-number)

(add-hook 'gnus-summary-prepared-hook 'gnus-summary-hide-all-threads)

This will start with threads ordered in the buffer with most recent on
top, and collapsed until you begin to read them.

Read the [Gmail]/All Mail group rather than the INBOX to see your
replies too.
