Richard Stallman downloads email once a day: http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/RichardStallman
How can I replicate this in Gmail? Specifically, I'd like something that would deliver all of the messages I received throughout the day at noon (so that I could not read them before then). Of course I could just not check Gmail more than once a day, but I am not tough enough to do that (yet).
Right now I am using a Python script + cron job to deliver messages to a second address, where the messages appear at the specified time. Is there a way to let me read the messages in the original account? I was thinking you could use clever filters in Gmail to forward everything to a holding account, and then append some key to the message, but is there a better way?
