Go to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/dashboard and accept current rules.
Next create an new project
Enter name of you new project and click Create
Google will working now, please wait until finish. Next go to enable your API interface, we make if for Google
Take "Gmail" in search input and after click in found result.
Click Enable interface, Google will working now.
Create your login credentials
Select Windows Interface (combobox), User credentials (radio) and click button what is need bla bla
Type name of a new client id for oAuth 2.0 and click Create a new Client ID.
Next configure screen aplication, type some name and click Next. Google will working now.
Last step on this website is download source with your credentials in *Json format.
Now you received a file named client_id.json, it's how it look in Sublime Text:
Now we need to call a some function to get access code.
#include <oAuth.au3> Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" oAuth2GetAuthorizationCode($sClientId, $sRedirectUri)
Function will execute default browser for ask you to permission.
Next Google ask you to permission for access to your personal details by application Autoit
Now you can thing is something wrong but all is ok, you need to copy all after code= . It your access code.
Let's now ask Google about our Access Token and Refresh Token
#include <oAuth.au3> Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sClientSecret = "cWalvFr3WxiE6cjUkdmKEPo8" Local $sAuthorizationCode = "4/AAAPXJOZ-Tz0s6mrx7JbV6nthXSfcxaszFh_aH0azVqHkSHkfiwE8uamcabn4eMbEWg1eAuUw7AU0PQ0XeWUFRo#" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" Local $aRet = oAuth2GetAccessToken($sClientId, $sClientSecret, $sAuthorizationCode, $sRedirectUri) If Ubound($aRet) <> 4 then ConsoleWrite("+++ Something wrong with reading ResponseText." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ConsoleWrite("Successfully received data from Google." & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("access_token: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("expires_in: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("refresh_token: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("token_type: " & $aRet & @CRLF)
Important! When you received error 400 and output says: Invalid grant it means that your previous generated access_code lost validity and you need to generate new calling previus code. When everything is fine you should received a 4 informations about your: access_token, expires_in, refresh_token and token_type. Access_Token time is a little short so you need to know fuction possible to refresh it (tell Google that he should generate a new Token for you)
#include <oAuth.au3> Local $sRefreshToken = "1/ba8JpW7TjQH3-UI1BvPaXhSf-oTQ4BmZAbBfhcKgKfY" Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sClientSecret = "cWalvFr3WxiE6cjUkdmKEPo8" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" Local $aRet = oAuth2RefreshAccessToken($sRefreshToken, $sClientId, $sClientSecret) If Ubound($aRet) <> 3 then ConsoleWrite("+++ Something wrong with reading ResponseText." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ConsoleWrite("Successfully received data from Google." & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("access_token: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("expires_in: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("token_type: " & $aRet & @CRLF)

I want to create a script than can read a gmail inbox to see content of mails from a particular address. I have searched a lot in the forum, there are so many topics related to this but I was not able to get a script that reads mail text. Can anyone please help?
I currently want to write a script that will download the emails from my gmail account and store them on my hard drive in form of text messages. Text file name will have date followed by title of the email and the email body will be the text body. Then I will write my scripts to monitor and inspect emails and post process the data.
Anyone can suggest an easy way to achieve this?
Maybe it has to be done indirectly via first having an email client that tracks my gmail account and downloads emails to hard drive such as Outlook?
Will be very thankful for any suggestions on how to tackle this.
Any suggestions as to how to download, get, or retrieve email from Google's Gmail? No need to send mail only receive.
I thought perhaps JiBE's SSL UDF might work however a reply to a post at his original post says otherwise (Didn't want to hijack his post).
I have been using "GAM", "GYB", and "GMAIL Backup"(old), all command line inputs. Running them through a AutoIT script using RUN() and RUNWAIT() works somewhat, but has been unreliable.
