GMail Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The GMail class provides an easy to use interface to Gmail.

Syntax

cloudmail.gmail()

Remarks

GMail provides a simple way to access and manage mail in Gmail.

The class connects to the Gmail server using IMAP and also supports Gmail specific IMAP extensions such as thread ids and labels.

To begin you may authenticate either by specifying User and Password, or by providing an OAuth authorization string in Authorization and setting AuthMechanism to amSASLXOAuth2. Call the Connect method to connect.

After connecting set the Mailbox property and call SelectMailbox to select a mailbox to examine. To retrieve information about the messages in the mailbox set MessageSet and call FetchMessageInfo. To download a message call FetchMessageText.

Many other operations are supported by the class including managing flags, moving and copying messages, working with Gmail labels, and more. Review the methods listed in this help file for more information on supported operations.
