another oprion is to use e.g. offlineimap [1]to get your email and read it
with e.g. gnus?

From their webpage:

,----
| OfflineImap synchronizes emails between two repositories, so that you
| can read the same mailbox from multiple computers. It supports IMAP as
| REMOTE repository and Maildir/IMAP as LOCAL repository. See below for a
| full list of features.

I do this for three accounts (gmail, university exchange
server, iCloud mail account) and it works perfectly.

There are other imap sync programs as well which you could use.

Cheers,

Rainer
