Downloading Messages with Attachments from Gmail

I have issues attempting to download from Gmail using the Pop3Client class.

In a POP3 telnet session (pop.gmail.com 995 +SSL):

+OK Gpop ready for requests from [ADDRESS]
USER [EMAIL]
+OK send PASS
PASS [PASSWORD]
+OK Welcome.
RETR 1
+OK message follows

RETR 2
+OK message follows

RETR 3
+OK message follows


This all proceeds how I would expect, with messages 2 and 3 having attachments, and each RETR command dumping the message as-is.

But with the following code, I download incomplete messages:

using (var client = new Pop3Client(“pop.gmail.com”, “[EMAIL]”, “[PASSWORD]”))
{
client.Port = 995;
client.SecurityMode = Pop3SslSecurityMode.Implicit;
client.EnableSsl = true;
client.Connect();
client.Login();

// The server must implement this command
var nummessages = client.GetMessageCount();

for (int i = 1; i <= nummessages; i++) // 1-based index for messages
{
try
{
using (var eml = client.FetchMessage(i))
{
eml.Save(@"Email " + i + “.eml”, Aspose.Network.Mail.MessageFormat.Eml);
eml.Save(@"Email " + i + “.msg”, Aspose.Network.Mail.MessageFormat.Msg);
}
}
catch (Pop3Exception ex)
{
Console.WriteLine(“Error retrieving message: {0}”, i);
Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
}
}

// client.Quit();
// client.Disconnect();
}
For the e-mails above, only E-mail #1 comes through completely (it has no attachments). For #3, I open the resulting EML file and find:
MIME-Version: 1.0
Date: 12 Mar 2010 16:48:56 -0100
[End of file]
So, something with attachments seems to be amiss.

Hi,

I can also reproduce this issue with Gmail at my end. I have also logged this issue in our bug tracking system (ID: 15129). We will notify you as soon as we make some progress to fix this.

Thank you.

I am reproducing this problem with Exchange POP3, too.

Similarly, I get an error saying something like:

Aspose.Network.Pop3.Pop3Exception: Command failure. The server response was: StatusCode: Error, Response: Received: from exchange.[DOMAIN] ([[ADDRESS]]) by exchange.[DOMAIN]
([[ADDRESS]]) with mapi; Tue, 16 Mar 2010 12:14:47 -0700

It looks like the error text is actually a part of the valid response from a RETR of the message.

Do you have an ETA for when this can be resolved? Unfortunately grabbing attachments is the sole reason I want to use the toolkit for.

Thanks!

Hi,

Hopefully, this issue would be resolved by next week. We will inform you as soon as it is fixed.
