Project description

Build Status

MailBot: register callbacks to be executed on mail reception.


Setup your environment:

git clone
cd mailbot

Hack and run the tests using Tox to test on all the supported python versions:

make test

There’s also a live test suite, that you may run using the following command:

make livetest

Please note that to run live tests, you need to create a file with the following content:

# mandatory
HOST = 'your host here'
USERNAME = 'your username here'
PASSWORD = 'your password here'

# optional
# check
PORT = 143  # port number, usually 143 or 993 if ssl is enabled
USE_UID = True
SSL = False
STREAM = False

For convenience, you can copy the provided sample, and modify it:

$ cp
