* `GitHub/pymmails <https:"" sdpython="" pymmails=""/>`_

The module was started to grab emails using IMAP and to store them on a local disk.
I now use it to download to material sent by my students before an oral presentation.
I receive many of them and it is usually annoying to download them one by one.
Here is the code I use::

from pyquickhelper import fLOG
from pymmails import MailBoxImap
user = ""
pwd = "passsword"
server = "imap.your_provider.ext"
box = MailBoxImap(user, pwd, server)

A parameter ``pattern`` can be added to look for a subset of emails::

pattern='FROM "xavier"')

Below, some examples of patterns::

pattern='FROM "xavier" SINCE 1-Feb-2013'
pattern='FROM "xavier" SINCE 1-Feb-2013 BEFORE 5-May-2013'
pattern='FROM "xavier" SINCE 1-Feb-2013 BEFORE 5-May-2013 UNANSWERED'
pattern='CC "jacques" FROM "xavier" DELETED'
pattern='TEXT "github"'
pattern='LARGER 10000 SMALLER 1000000'
pattern='SUBJECT "programmation"'
pattern='TO "student" FLAGGED'
