Hi,

Do you know of any email contacts grabber library in Python?
i.e. The user supplies the username and password of gmail to a site, and the site using a library logons to gmail and parses the contact list and extract the emails so that the user can send invites using the gmail contacts.

Thanks
Jamie

This library should do it:
http://libgmail.sourceforge.net/

If that does not do it there are many other options here:

Hi number1pride,

I was hoping for a library that does all the major emails.
Similar to this, but this library doesn't have python

Jamie,

You should be able to use the imap library for this, at least for gmail and yahoo.  For hotmail is a little more complicated and not sure if you can use imap for aol.

So i think this should give you a start "imaplib'

Here is an example for gmail:


import imaplib

usr="user@gmail.com"
pwd="yourpassword"

gmail = imaplib.IMAP4_SSL('imap.gmail.com', 993)
gmail.login(usr,pwd)

status, count = gmail.select('Inbox')
print status
status, data = gmail.fetch(count[0], '(UID BODY[TEXT])')

print data[0][1]
gmail.close()
gmail.logout()

Open in new window
