GMail support is currently enabled all the time in SLS mode. As a result anyone without a GMail account still has it displayed.

I'll try to look at this over next few days.

Not as easy as I'd imagined.

Removing the actual text displayed is as easy as adding a check for a command line parameter (--gmail like in Default). The problem comes from the mail icon generated by /usr/share/conkycolors/scripts/conkySLS.lua. I would need to pass a value to the script to tell it to enable or disable a block of code.

On a side note, weather defaults to BRXX0043 when no param is specified. Might be worth mentioning it somewhere in help output, at the moment it just uses it as an example.

Maybe replace the gmail with something more worth and secure (since the password isn't encrypted).

Would be even better if there was a script that could hook into more providers, something like --mail=gmail or --mail=hotmail. As for security, maybe there's something in the API that would allow sign on with a token or similar to avoid password being stored in plain text.

Since the script from kaivalagi is not working anymore and i dont have plans to support it... duo to security issue too. I removed it from the sls mode.
