A module to download emails from an IMAP4 server

Project description

pymmails: send and grab mails

Build status Build Status Windows GitHub Issues MIT License Requirements Status

The module was started to grab emails using IMAP and to store them on a local disk. It is now used to download material sent by students before an oral presentation, which is quite annoying to do manually.

from pymmails import MailBoxImap, EmailMessageRenderer

user = ""
pwd = "passsword"
server = "imap.your_provider.ext"

box = MailBoxImap(user, pwd, server)
render = EmailMessageRenderer()
for mail in box.enumerate_mails_in_folder("saved", pattern="<pattern>") :
    mail.dump(render, location=temp, fLOG=fLOG)

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'
