C#/CSharp Example

The following example codes demonstrate how to retrieve email from IMAP4 server. This sample downloads emails from IMAP4 server and deletes the email after the email is retrieved.

Code:

// The following example codes demonstrate retrieving email from IMAP4 server
// To get full sample projects, please download and install EAGetMail on your machine.
// To run it correctly, please change email server, user, password, folder, file name value to yours

using System; 
using System.Collections.Generic; 
using System.Text; 
using System.IO; 

// Add EAGetMail namespace
using EAGetMail; 

namespace receiveemail 
{ 
    class Program 
    { 
        static void Main(string[] args) 
        { 
            // Create a folder named "inbox" under current directory
            // to save the email retrieved.
            string curpath = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory(); 
            string mailbox = String.Format("{0}\\inbox", curpath); 

            // If the folder is not existed, create it.
            if (!Directory.Exists(mailbox)) 
            { 
                Directory.CreateDirectory(mailbox); 
            } 

            MailServer oServer = new MailServer("imap.emailarchitect.net", 
                        "test@emailarchitect.net", "testpassword", ServerProtocol.Imap4 ); 
            MailClient oClient = new MailClient("TryIt"); 

            // Set IMAP4 server port
            oServer.Port = 143; 

            // If your IMAP server requires SSL connection,
            // Please add the following codes:
            // oServer.SSLConnection = true;
            // oServer.Port = 993;

            try 
            { 
                oClient.Connect(oServer); 
                MailInfo[] infos = oClient.GetMailInfos(); 
                for (int i = 0; i < infos.Length; i++) 
                { 
                    MailInfo info = infos[i]; 
                    Console.WriteLine("Index: {0}; Size: {1}; UIDL: {2}", 
                        info.Index, info.Size, info.UIDL); 

                    // Receive email from IMAP4 server
                    Mail oMail = oClient.GetMail(info); 

                    Console.WriteLine("From: {0}", oMail.From.ToString()); 
                    Console.WriteLine("Subject: {0}\r\n", oMail.Subject); 

                    // Generate an email file name based on date time.
                    System.DateTime d = System.DateTime.Now; 
                    System.Globalization.CultureInfo cur = new 
                        System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US"); 
                    string sdate = d.ToString("yyyyMMddHHmmss", cur); 
                    string fileName = String.Format("{0}\\{1}{2}{3}.eml", 
                        mailbox, sdate, d.Millisecond.ToString("d3"), i); 

                    // Save email to local disk
                    oMail.SaveAs(fileName, true); 

                    // Mark email as deleted from IMAP4 server.
                    oClient.Delete(info); 
                } 

                // Quit and pure emails marked as deleted from IMAP4 server.
                oClient.Quit(); 
            } 
            catch (Exception ep) 
            { 
                Console.WriteLine(ep.Message); 
            }

Hi, Yahoo server uses POP3 protocol, so here you should input ServerProtocol.Pop3.

Here is an example for retrieving email from yahoo mail server.
