mRpostman - IMAP Tools for R in a Tidy Way


mRpostman is an R package to help you to easy connect to your IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) server and execute commands, such as listing mailboxes, fetching and searching for messages in a tidy way. It heavily relies on {curl} for issuing the IMAP commands.

So far, mRpostman have been tested with Gmail, Yahoo Mail and AOL Mail, but it should also work with other mail providers. I would be happy to hear other successful experiences from users.

ATTENTION: Before you start, you have to enable “less secure apps access” in your mail account settings.

There is a detailed vignette HERE showing how to use the package!

That’s all!
