NAME

Net::Gmail::IMAP::Label - IMAP proxy for Google's Gmail that retrieves message labels

VERSION

version 0.008

SYNOPSIS

gmail-imap-label [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a proxy that sits between an IMAP client and Gmail's IMAPS server and adds GMail labels to the X-Label header. This proxy uses the Gmail IMAP extensions.

To use this proxy, your e-mail client will need to connect to the proxy using the IMAP protocol (without SSL).

EXAMPLES

The simplest way of starting is to run the proxy on the default port of 10143:

gmail-imap-label

An alternative port can be specified using the --port option

gmail-imap-label --port 993

The proxy has been tested with both mutt (v1.5.21) and offlineimap (v6.3.4). Example configuration files for these are available in the doc directory.

With mutt, you may have to clear the header cache every so often so that any updated labels are available inside the UI.

INSTALLATION

You can either install the package from CPAN or from your package manager.

To install the Debian package, run

apt-get install libnet-gmail-imap-label-perl

SEE ALSO

See gmail-imap-label for a complete listing of options.
