AE.Net.Mail

A C# POP/IMAP client library

Background

These are text-based services... it's not that hard, and yet all the projects I found out there were nasty, bloated, and severely error prone. So, I rebuilt one. This is based heavily on xemail-net. I simplified it quite a bit, and created standard methods for repeated code blocks and implemented a base class to simplify the creation of the Pop3 client.

Sample Usage

IMAP

using(var imap = new AE.Net.Mail.ImapClient(host, username, password, AE.Net.Mail.ImapClient.AuthMethods.Login, port, isSSL))            {
    var msgs = imap.SearchMessages(
      SearchCondition.Undeleted().And(
        SearchCondition.From("david"), 
        SearchCondition.SentSince(new DateTime(2000, 1, 1))
      ).Or(SearchCondition.To("andy"))
    );
      
    Assert.AreEqual(msgs[0].Value.Subject, "This is cool!");

    imap.NewMessage += (sender, e) => {
      var msg = imap.GetMessage(e.MessageCount - 1);
      Assert.AreEqual(msg.Subject, "IDLE support?  Yes, please!");
    };
}

POP

 using(var pop = new AE.Net.Mail.Pop3Client(host, username, password, port, isSSL)) {
   for(var i = pop.GetMessageCount() - 1; i >= 0; i--){
      var msg = pop.GetMessage(i, false);
      Assert.AreEqual(msg.Subject, "Standard API between different protocols?  Yes, please!");
      pop.DeleteMessage(i); //WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' EMAIL!
   }
}
