Reading emails using IMAP protocol in racket
I am using the following code to get an IMAP connection. I want to read emails. I have read this documentation and couldn't come from here.
#lang racket (define imap-server "*****") (define imap-port-no ***) (define username "*****") (define pw "*****") (define mailbox-name "INBOX") (require openssl/mzssl net/imap mzlib/etc) (define (test-connect) (let ([c (ssl-make-client-context)]) (let-values ([(in out) (ssl-connect imap-server imap-port-no c)]) (imap-connect* in out username pw mailbox-name)))) (define-values (imap cnt recent) (test-connect))
I am getting the number of emails and the number of recent emails from this. How to proceed from here. what functions should I call to read emails. Thanks in advance.

Try something like this:
(imap-get-messages imap '(1) '(uid flags header body))
This should return a list containing the "fields" described by flags, which
gives you the full header part and the
email body. (This is just a quick experiment to see that everything works, you need to know which messages to retrieve, etc. - everything is described in the documentation .)
Here is a complete program that returns a list of headers you want for each message in the INBOX, where each message gets a list of headers and their values as strings. But note that email is not very reliable for
this kind of thing - you can get the message no matter what appears in the field and there are many other headers with similar semantics (e.g.
, sometimes there is a header
that might be more reliable than
#lang racket/base (define imap-server "imap.somewhere.com") (define imap-port-no 1234) (define username "----") (define pw "----") (define mailbox-name "INBOX") (require racket/list openssl/mzssl net/imap net/head) (define (test-connect) (let ([c (ssl-make-client-context)]) (let-values ([(in out) (ssl-connect imap-server imap-port-no c)]) (imap-connect* in out username pw mailbox-name)))) (define-values [imap messages recent] (test-connect)) (define (get-interesting-headers ns) (for/list ([x (imap-get-messages imap ns '(header))]) (filter-map (λ (x) (define s (string->symbol (string-downcase (bytes->string/utf-8 (car x))))) (and (memq s '(from to date subject)) (cons s (bytes->string/utf-8 (cdr x))))) (extract-all-fields (car x))))) (get-interesting-headers (for/list ([i messages]) (add1 i)))
