Overview of IMAP protocol
The IMAP protocol is a standard protocol for managing emails. Unlike the POP3 protocol, the principle for using the IMAP protocol consists in leaving the messages on the messaging server in order to read them from several clients. It includes a specified indicator used to find out whether a message was read. Several messaging servers support both the IMAP protocol and the POP3 protocol.
Notes:
Using the IMAP protocol

Receiving messages by using the IMAP protocol

To receive emails by using the IMAP protocol
  1. Start an IMAP session by using an emailIMAPSession variable and EmailStartSession.
    Example for starting a session by using an emailIMAPSession variable:
    // Start the messaging session
    MySession is EmailIMAPSession
    MySession..ServerAddress = "pop.mycompany.us"
    MySession..Name = "user"
    MySession..Password = "secret"
    EmailStartSession(MySession)
  2. Read the messages on the messaging server:
    • with EmailGetAll,
    • with a loop such as:
      Example that is using an Email variable:
      MyMessage is Email
      EmailReadFirst(MySession,MyMessage)
      WHILE NOT MyMessage..Out
      // Place the process of the message read...
      ...

      EmailReadNext(MySession, MyMessage)
      END

      Example that is using the Email structure:
      EmailReadFirst(MySession)
      WHILE NOT Email.Out
              // Place the process of the message read...
              ...
              
              EmailReadNext(MySession)
      END
    • or with a loop such as (the "NOT READ" keywords are optional and they allow you to browse only the unread messages or all the messages):
      MyMessage is Email
      FOR EACH MyMessage NOT READ OF MySession
              // Place the process of the message read...
              ...
      END
  3. Close the IMAP session with EmailCloseSession.
