[Rd] Fetching email in R (IMAP)

Is there an R package for fetching email from an IMAP mail server?

I found the CRAN package sendmailR (for sending mail via SMTP) and the CRAN package Imap (but that is actually Interactive Mapping, nothing to do with email). I also found a blog posting (
http://www.r-bloggers.com/sna-visualising-an-email-box-with-r/) which attacks this via Python. I was hoping for a more direct approach.

In particular, what I'd like to do is download all the emails from my gmail account with given tags to do a certain analysis.
