address@hidden ~]$ grep imap.gmail.com /etc/hosts
173.194.65.108 imap.gmail.com

:)

Otherwise, I use isync to sync my mail to a local dovecot server, and
have Gnus connect to that dovecot server, rather than to Gmail directly.
In that case, I can use a directive like this in my ~/.mbsyncrc file:

Tunnel "ssh server.I.own tcpconnect imap.gmail.com 993"

To run the traffic around. Of course, you need to have a server outside
the country! But if you're not using a local dovecot, you could probably
use a similar shell command in the nnimap setup of your ~/.gnus.el file.
