Hi,

[Image: icon.png]

I have developed an Email-Add-on.

With this Add-on you can read your emails from within XBMC, all you need is an email provider which supports IMAP (most do).

Current features
- Email provider-templates (Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud). You only need to choose your provider and set username/password. Or you choose custom and set the imap-server-host manually.
- List Mailboxes (INBOX, Drafts, Trash, ...) incl. "Total/Unseen" stats.
- Flag Emails as seen/unseen (reading emails flags them as seen, too)
- read Emails (at least the text part, but most emails contain html AND text)
- delete Emails (you will be asked if you are sure before anything gets deleted...)


I would be happy if you could test it and give me some feedback!
Also, if you need more provider-templates, just tell me the data (or open Pull-Requests at Github).

As always, later in the official repo, now only .ZIP:

Changelog:
Quote:0.1.0 (05.07.2013)
- added Mailbox Pagination
- fixed GMAIL Virtual Folder
- fixed Mailbox Name decoding
- cosmetics

0.0.1 (22.06.2013)
- initial release
Download
Version 0.1.0

Going to install it now. Could be handy.
I don't see it in feature list but maybe (password protected) multiple accounts is something for next versions?

Edit:
Url is broken Wink

A few things i noticed:

Seeing this regular

When opening mailbox folder named
[GMAIL] (0/0)

URL is fixed, thanks!

The error messages you see:
Code:
13:04:19 T:6728 WARNING: XFILE::CFileFactory::CreateLoader - Unsupported protocol(plugin) in plugin://plugin.programm.xbmcmail/mailbox/INBOX/73/show/folder.jpg
is a bug in xbmc core in combination to xbmcswift based plugins. Its harmless and only cosmetic.

The "[GMAIL] (0/0)"-thing is a Gmail special thing, I will hide this non-mailbox entry in the next version.

Multiple accounts is something I already thought about - but it would make things much more complex. I don't think that it will be added soon.

And btw, forgot to say that when the add-on works stable enough it will use caching (caching makes debugging much harder, thats why it isn't already included).

Thanks for your feedback,
sphere

Thanks for explaining sphere and for the addon off course Wink

So far it runs smooth with Gmail, going to try it with my ISP account in a few but won't expect any issues.

Multiple accounts is not something i really need, can life without it.
Something that would make it perfect (but you probably already have this on your todo list) is compose emails?

Yes, maybe later. Problem is that XBMC doesn't provide any "multiline editable Text"-dialog, just the modal keyboard-dialog.
Of course there's the Edit-Control - but this would need a custom window which would need to be designed and skinned.

Originally I planned to create this add-on as script with an own GUI - but I was not sure if this would be worth the work needed.

Ah yes, its Frodo only atm.

EDIT:
And the Eden Repository is closed for new add-ons so a backport won't make much sense. Sorry.

Hi,

I can see great use for this, being able to check emails within xbmc is a great feature but I wonder will this add-on support hotmail/outlook sometime in the future or is this not possible?

Thanks

This Add-on uses the IMAP mail protocol, so it supports every email provider which supports IMAP.
Afaik hotmail and outlook don't support imap, only POP3.

So POP3 support is not planned or not possible?
