How to check GMail inbox from command line August 01, 2016
First of all we have to create an application password here.
Then, create bash script like this one:
#!/bin/bash

# crontab example line
# */4 * * * * /home/username/check-gmail.sh 

export DISPLAY=:0

username="your-email@gmail.com"
password="your-app-password"

/usr/bin/curl -u $username:$password --silent "https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom" | \
  grep -oPm1 "(?<=<title>)[^<]+" | sed '1d' | \
  while read line; do 
    /usr/bin/notify-send -i xfce-newmail "You've got new mail!" "$line" -t 5000
  done
After that, you can add this script to your cron using crontab -e. As you see, notify-send is used here to display system notification (XFCE, in my case) for each new mail received, in your case you can change that in the way you like.
