Note OpenSSH is software (like Dropbear) and SSH is a protocol (as in SSHv1 or SSHv2). Retrieving email uses other protocols like POP or IMAP. Common email-reading applications including Mozilla Thunderbird and Google email support using the secure versions POP3S and IMAPS: see the documentation.

Expanding on unSpawn, POP3S/IMPS use the SSL protocol.
If using the Firefox browser, consider adding the 'HTTPS Everywhere' extension https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere.
Alternately, an ssh tunnel may be useful, it all depends exactly how you want to connect to gmail.
