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.

Downloads

You can always get the latest package on Nuget (includes .NET 4.0 and 3.5 binaries) or download the binaries (targeting .NET 4.0) as a .zip archive from here. The documentation is also available for offline viewing as HTML or CHM and can be downloaded from here and here, respectively.

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
  • Supports IMAP over SSL
  • API designed to be very easy to use
  • Allows selectively fetching parts of mail messages
  • Inherently thread-safe
  • Well documented with lots of example code
  • Robust MIME parser, tested with 100.000+ mails
  • Supports various authentication mechanisms (SCRAM-SHA-1, OAUTH2, NTLM among others)
  • Integrates well with existing System.Net.Mail infrastructure
  • Still supports .NET 3.5
  • Free to use in commercial and personal projects (MIT license)
