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'


Design
------

This project contains various helper about logging functions, unit tests and help generation.
* a source folder: ``src``
* a unit test folder: ``_unittests``, go to this folder and run ``run_unittests.py``
* a _doc folder: ``_doc``, it will contains the documentation
* a file ``setup.py`` to build and to install the module
* a file ``make_help.py`` to build the sphinx documentation
