Actually, first you will have to select the folder from list and then click on OpenFolder.
After that you can get messages.
Flow should be like this:
Get Folders list
Open Folder
Get Subject List
Open that specific message
Get the message info

One thing you should note that only messages which have been retrieved can be opened.
So you need to retrieve subject list and messages alternately.

Ok, the email is raw email.

Message Info is a dictionary and body can be html.

Please, I've tryed this test apk, and once I introduce the connection details, it apparently works when I click on the "Connect" botton (it appears the "+OK POP3 ready"), but after that, when I click on the "Folder List" botton, the "Not connected" message appears... Am I doing something wrong?
Thank you in advance.

This should not appear as extension uses IMAP and not POP3.
Can you show a video of error?

Thank you for your interest.

I've finally solved the problem (I wasn't working with the right details to connect). Sorry for that.

The thing is that an error window appears now when I click on the "Getlist" button (I've previously chosen the folder, and the app is able to count the number of messages, so I think everything is working properly at that time). The error window says:

"Select list item: List index too large
Select list item: Attempt to get item number 2 of a list of length 1:[""]"

This is the screenshot:

Can you please help me with that?

Thank you again!

After selecting folder you need to list subjects first, for that you need to define a range such as 1 to 50 in the textbox as 1;50 only then you should call GetSList.
I think you should buy the extension to learn more about its usage.

However, test apk is no longer available.

Hi, please. How do can body be html?

I don't know why, but although I've tryed many combinations to make it work,I was unable to create an apk where TaifunMail (to send emails) and IMAPClient (to read emails) can work together. They work fine together under Companion, but once you try to create an apk, App Inventor is unable to compile the project, and an error message appears.

Any suggestion?

Thank you!


There is a no-deps version also there.
However, I can't assure its compatibility with other extensions.
Why not try this? (compatible)

Thank you.
I've tried again.... And it happens the same: it works fine under Companion, but unable to compile the project.

I'll appreciate any suggestion you can provide.

Please, can you please create a quick draft app (and its .apk) with those two extensions to make sure they can work together?

Thank you again.

Did you use this aix?
