e-Boks mailer

Notice: e-Boks turned off their mobile optimized website, hence this project is not up to date. Feel free to implement the app-API and submit a pull request

Fetch unread "e-Boks" messages and mail* them to yourself. Useful in a closed ecosystem, where you control your own mail server.

*) or save them to disk. Actually, with the modular backends you can define your own place to process and store the files.


eboks-mailer.py /path/to/config.yaml

You need to configure this with your CPR#, password and activation key.

You get the password and activation key from the e-Boks website. Here is a video-guide on how to get it (in Danish).

Python requirements:

  • requests
  • yaml
  • BeautifulSoup (bs4)

Integration with Sieve filters

You can fetch messages automagically by triggering on the email sent from e-Boks. Here is an example with a Sieve filter, using the extprograms plugin.

require ["vnd.dovecot.execute"];

if address :matches "From" "besked@advisering.e-boks.dk" {
    execute "eboks-mailer-trigger" "/home/<user>/.eboks.yaml";

Where eboks-mailer-trigger is a script in /usr/lib/dovecot/sieve-execute

nohup /opt/eboks-mailer/eboks-mailer.py $1 &

And the master system config is something like (in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf)

plugin {
  sieve_plugins = sieve_extprograms
  sieve_extensions = +vnd.dovecot.execute
  sieve_execute_bin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/sieve-execute
