Before running POEM-MKR you have to make sure that IMAP is enabled for Gmail and Chats. To do this, open Gmail in your browser and find “Settings.”
In “Settings” go to “Forwarding and POP/IMAP”.
Then check “Enable IMAP” in the “IMAP Access” section.
Then go to “Labels”.
In “Labels”, check “Show in IMAP” for the “Chats” folder.
This should work for you, but if you have any trouble feel free to email me at obr208 at nyu.
