A module to download emails from an IMAP4 server

Links:

Description

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
fLOG(OutputPrint=True)
user = "your.email"
pwd = "passsword"
server = "imap.your_provider.ext"
box = MailBoxImap(user, pwd, server)
box.login()
box.dump_html(folder=os.path.abspath(r"folder_destination"))
box.logout()

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

...
box.dump_html(folder=os.path.abspath(r"folder_destination"),
            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'
pattern='UNSEEN'
