IMAPProcessor is a client for processing messages on an IMAP server. It provides some basic mechanisms for connecting to an IMAP server, determining capabilities and handling messages.
IMAPProcessor ships with several executables which can query and manipulate IMAP mailboxes in several different ways:
Archives old messages to a new dated mailbox.
Delete messages older than a certain age in specified mailboxes.
Flag messages to/from certain people.
Shows new messages in a mailbox.
Queries an IMAP server for keywords set on messages
Flags messages based on what you’ve flagged before.
Ensures that certain mailboxes exist.
Only known to work with SASL/PLAIN authentication
Run any command with –help for details.

This is kinda painful. You need to have Two Factor Authentication enabled with google, then you need to create an app specific password as described here: support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833
Then, your config needs to be set up like this:
- :Host: imap.googlemail.com :ssl: true :auth: PLAIN :username: email@example.com :password: app-specific-password
Specifically, you need to set auth to PLAIN, and your password needs to your app specific password. Run with –debug to help figure problems out.
Google is threatening to turn this off at some point and require oauth… at which point… I have no idea. I give up I guess.
gem install imap_processor
