Tmail + IMAP + Attachments


#1

I am working on a script to log in to a mail server via IMAP and pull
tables of content from certain emails. All the tables are accompanied by
graphs which are quite nice.

How can I pull these attachments with Tmail, is this possible?

Here is what I have so far:

Sorry, forgot some important information.

Filetype: image/gif #=> Image format of the graphs I want to save.

I appreciate any help I can get. :slight_smile:

Didn’t tried with tmail but this is how it goes with IMAP.

imap = Net::IMAP.new(‘my.mail.server’)
imap.login(‘usr’, ‘pwd’)
imap.select(‘Inbox’)

all msgs

n = imap.search([“SINCE”, “1-Jan-1969”])
n.each do |msgID|
msg = imap.fetch(msgID, [“ENVELOPE”,“UID”,“BODY”] )[0]
unless msg.attr[“ENVELOPE”].subject.index(‘SOME STRING’).nil?
body = msg.attr[“BODY”]
i = 1
while body.parts[i] != nil
sType = body.parts[i].subtype
cName = body.parts[i].param[‘NAME’]
i+=1
attachment = imap.fetch(msgID,
“BODY[#{i}]”)[0].attr[“BODY[#{i}]”]
File.open($wDir+cName,‘wb+’) { |f|
f.write(attachment.unpack(‘m’)) } unless attachment.nil?
end
end
end

Thank you that worked. Still having some problems getting it to work but
I am sure it will come to me.

Thank you again!
