For me it works fine with protocol IMAP4rev1 (SSL):

Server: imap.gmail.com
Port: 993

Note that you may have to enable IMAP4 access in your GMail web account.

Yes, GMail still works for me. But you have to explicily enable IMAP4 access in the GMail web account (not just in PopMan).

There is a simple switch you need to set in addition to the general POP/IMAP access: https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps
