Email Protocols / Gmail only shows and downloads 2000 mails
« on: May 18, 2018, 09:44:49 AM »
Got an odd problem with Gmail. I don't think it's a Chilkat problem.

The user has about 13k mails in his inbox. When I get the number of mails in his inbox it's exactly 2000 mails and not 13k. I read about Gmail having limitations on sending email. But I didn't find anything concrete about downloading mails. Any ideas if this is a preferences setting in Gmail?

Auth / OAuth and what then?
« on: March 17, 2018, 05:28:42 AM »

I've successfully connected with OAuth to Gmail. But what comes afterwards?

I understand where I've got the access token and I'm supposed to save it.

Code: [Select]
Dim sbJson As New Chilkat.StringBuilder

The next time I need to log in I would guess that I need this somewhere. But where? How do I use this instead of trying to log in again? Something like

Code: [Select]
if got access token then
 load access token from preferences into oauth
  do the connect stuff
end if

But even when being logging in getting the mailboxes fails. The code below:

Code: [Select]
CkoMailboxTask = CkoImap.ListMailboxesAsync("", "*")
call CkoMailboxTask.Run
While CkoMailboxTask.Finished <> True
  if globals.StopArchiving then
    if not CkoMailboxTask.Cancel then app.SleepCurrentThread(10)
    Return Nil
  end if

if not CkoMailboxTask.TaskSuccess then
  globals.theErrorLog.LogItem(CurrentMethodName + " task didn't finish")
  Return Nil
end if

dim CkoMailboxes as new Chilkat.Mailboxes
if not CkoMailboxes.LoadTaskResult(CkoMailboxTask) then
  globals.theErrorLog.LogItem(CurrentMethodName + " wasn't able to load result from task") '<------ no mailboxes
n Nil
end if

fails when loading the result of the task. A simple

dim theM as Chilkat.Mailboxes = CkoImap.ListMailboxes("", "*")

also doesn't work. Do I need to connect the Oauth to Chilkat.Imap?

Xojo / Still problems

I still haven't solved the problem that we discussed at

This occurs for me again. Also I've got 2 customers with the same problem.

You said

I tested, and everything looked fine to me. The email in question is a multipart/alternative, but with only one alternative body, which is a text/plain body. There is no HTML body in this particular email. You can examine the MIME. If you're calling a method such as email.GetHtmlBody, then it will certainly return nothing because there's no HTML body..


One can't assume an HTML body exists (or that a plain-text body exists..)

Does that explain the problem, or is it something else?

However, this doesn't explain my problems.

- The problem always occurs for me for the same mail.
- I'm using FetchSingleAsMimeAsync and the result is blank. No email.GetHtmlBody involved.
- The mails on the test account don't change much. There are no new mails.

Am I doing something wrong?

1) I do a message set and count the mails:

  CkoMessageSet = new Chilkat.MessageSet
  CkoMessageSet = CkoImap.Search("NOT DELETED", True)
  NoOfMails = CkoMessageSet.Count

2) I get number of headers and check if the mails are available in the database or not.

3) If the mail is not in the database then I get the mail:

Code: [Select]
dim messageID as Integer = CkoMessageSet.getID(counter - 1)
CkoMailTask = CkoImap.FetchSingleAsMimeAsync(messageID, True)
CkoImap.ReadTimeout = 60
While CkoMailTask.Finished <> true

if not CkoMailTask.TaskSuccess then
  Globals.theErrorLog.LogItem(CurrentMethodName + " " + MailboxPath +  " task didn't finish")
  Return ""
end if

dim theBody as String = CkoMailTask.GetResultString
'theBody is empty here
