It’s official. I’ve received the blessing of Rohit Joshi to continue his work on his C# IMAP client library he posted over at codeproject.

I’ve created a project at codeplex to host the library and its code. You can find it here: http://www.codeplex.com/InterIMAP

Some major features that i will be adding to the library include:

  • Complete object model for folders, messages, content (including attachments)
  • Support for SSL connections (Complete)
  • Support for saving file attachments to the file system, or any other Stream
  • Support for getting the list of folders on the server and getting the UIDs of the messages in each folder
  • Being able to do all of the above with a few API calls as possible
  • The ability to send a raw IMAP command to the server and retrieve the response. Useful for customizing the behavior of the library.

I am really excited about this opportunity to contribute to the open-source community. Hopefully people will find this library useful and maybe help contribute to it and make better.
