only perl-http-cookies is needed as dependency, perl-http-cookies depends perl-http-message

Thanks, perl-http-cookies should be a dependency

I'm not sure how you reached that conclusion but I think you are mistaken. None of the missing modules mentioned are contained in perl-http-cookies. The dependencies go like this: checkgmail -> perl-lwp-protocol-https -> perl-libwww -> perl-http-cookies -> perl-http-messages. Checkgmail already depends on perl-http-cookies and perl-http-message indirectly.

From your log it looks like you don't have perl-lwp-protocol-https installed. Installing this package installs the other requirements automatically.
