A simple interface to proccessing e-mail messages using IMAP, including handling multipart messages and attachments.
Create a connection using EasyIMAP::Server.connect, and with the connection you can access Folders and Messages. To get a list of all Folders use EasyIMAP::Server#folders, to access the messages in a folder use EasyIMAP::Folder#messages, and to access the Attachments on a Message use EasyIMAP::Message#attachments.
EasyIMAP::Server.connect("mail.example.com", :username => "username", :password => "password") do |conn| inbox = conn.folders.first inbox.messages.each do |m| if m.attachments.any? && m.attachments.first.content_type == "application/vnd.ms-excel" File.open("/tmp/first_attachment.xls", "w") do |f| f.write(m.attachments.first.body) end end end end
sudo gem install easy_imap
EasyIMAP would not be nearly as wonderful without the contributions of others. I could not have done it myself. Thank you to all the contributors!
