Introduction

This repository contains an easy-to-use and well-documented .NET assembly for communicating with and receiving electronic mail from an Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) server.

Usage & Examples

To use the library add the S22.Imap.dll assembly to your project references in Visual Studio. Here's a simple example that initializes a new instance of the ImapClient class and connects to Gmail's IMAP server:

using System;
using S22.Imap;

namespace Test {
    class Program {
        static void Main(string[] args) {
            /* connect on port 993 using SSL */
            using (ImapClient Client = new ImapClient("imap.gmail.com", 993, true))
            {
                Console.WriteLine("We are connected!");
            }
        }
    }
}

Here are a couple of examples of how to use the library. Please also see the documentation for further details on using the classes and methods exposed by the S22.Imap namespace.

Features

  • Supports IMAP IDLE notifications
