Gmail IMAP4 server address is "imap.gmail.com". It requires SSL connection on 993 port, and you should use your Gmail email address as the user name for user authentication. For example: your email is "gmailid@gmail.com", and then the user name should be "gmailid@gmail.com".

To retrieve email from Gmail account, you need to enable POP3 or IMAP4 access in your gmail account settings.

Because Gmail POP3 server doesn't work like normal POP3 server, it hides old emails automatically even the email was not deleted, so we suggest that you use IMAP4 protocol.

The following example codes demonstrate how to retrieve email from Gmail IMAP4 server.

' To get full sample projects, please download and install EAGetMail on your machine.
' To run it correctly, please change email server, user, password, folder, file name value to yours

    ' to save the email retrieved.

    mailbox = curpath & "\inbox"

    oServer.Port = 993
