Can PRTG monitor Gmail Unread messages?



We have a catch-all Gmail address that receives all our messages and using a rule auto-forwards them and marks them as read in the catch-all inbox. Occasionally, the flow of messages hangs, resulting in a large number of unread messages in the catch-all inbox . I would like to be alerted when this is happening. Can PRTG monitor a Gmail inbox and alert me when there are ### unread messages in my inbox?

I'm afraid this is not possible. PRTG only has the IMAP sensor which is able to count all mails in a specific inbox but not only the unread.
Best regards
