Download Gmail emails to TXT files

Recommended Posts

unity06

Hi Forum,

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.

Regards

If you are going to use Outlook as your email client (which it sounds like you're open to) check out OutlookEX UDF in the Examples forum. You can use _OL_ItemSave to save a mail item to a specified path.

      Hi all,
       
      Trying to test sending an email using the _INetSmtpMail function, but I cannot get it to work.
       
      #include <Inet.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $s_SmtpServer = "smtp.gmail.com" Local $s_FromName = "My Name" Local $s_FromAddress = "x@gmail.com" Local $s_ToAddress = "x@gmail.com" Local $s_Subject = "Test - subject line" Local $as_Body[2] $as_Body[0] = "Test" $as_Body[1] = "End of test" Local $iResponse = _INetSmtpMail($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body) Local $iErr = @error If $iResponse = 1 Then     MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Success!", "Mail sent") Else     MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error!", "Mail failed with error code " & $iErr) EndIf  
      "Mail failed with error code 50" is the message I receive.  I've looked at what the autoit help page says: 50x - Cannot send body. x indicates the line number of $aBody (first line is 0). 
      I cannot find any solution online that has fixed this issue.  Any guidance would be much appreciated!

      I have a script that pops up a window, lets you type things in, and then emails our helpdesk. It works. What I want to do is add 3 more buttons that allow you to attach 3 photos (or less) from your computer. Something simple as "Add attachment" and then you can browse for it. I don't even know where to begin with programming that button. If anyone could post an example, that would be great.
      Here's the current script (changed to pet.com because I like dogs):

      Hi,
      I have been using Auotit to send status emails from a variety of systems (external to my work using gmail) including my work desktop PC (using company email gateway) - sending emails addressed to me and from me.
      A few days ago I upgraded to the latest version of Autoit (3.3.14.4) and I cannot send emails from my PC using INetSMTPmail through our mail gateway.
      To test this I grabbed a script that worked on a PC running a previous version of Autoit and that worked fine from the other PC which has an earlier version of Autoit on it. I had the source code for that and an exe so copied them to my PC and run the exe code which worked fine (sent me the status email). I then opened the source code in the SciTE editor and ran it, the script runs fine but doesn't send the email. I added some code to print out the error and I got 
      "Mail failed with error code 1"
      checking the help file there is no explanation for Error Code 1.
      Running my new scripts I get the error
      "Mail failed with error code 50"
      I don't understand why I get two different error codes - or why in the latest version it fails.
      Any help gratefully appreciated.
      I guess I could copy the script to the PC with the earlier version of Autoit and compile it and see what happens.

      Dear members, 
      I am working on a project where, emails from outlook are to be read and moved to various folders within the mailbox, based on the content of the emails.
      I used the below code for moving mails. It works fine when I run it against individual mail ids. But when I run it on Shared mailbox, the mails are not moved to respective folders.
      _OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $sEntryId, Default, $sDestinationFolder) The value of $sEntryId is saved in an excel report initially. The current process reads the $sEntryId from the excel and passes it to "_OL_ItemMove" statement.
      Requesting the guidance of the forum members in this issue.
