It doesn't compile out-of-the-box, but it's not to difficult to build; it
doesn't always work (and Cygwin is expressly not supported) but it does have TLS
support so it should work with gmail... I don't have a gmail account to test but
I could test it later with other servers (exim and sendmail) using STARTTLS
and/or SMTPS.
