📫 email-lib

Rust library to manage emails.

See the full API documentation on docs.rs.

The project is under active development. Do not use in production before the v1.0.0.


The development environment is managed by Nix. Running nix-shell will spawn a shell with everything you need to get started with the lib: cargo, cargo-watch, rust-bin, rust-analyzer, notmuch

# Start a Nix shell
$ nix-shell

# then build the lib
$ cargo build -p email-lib


Before running the test suite you need to spawn an IMAP server. Here an example with docker and greenmail:

$ docker run -it --rm \
  -p 3025:3025 -p 3110:3110 -p 3143:3143 -p 3465:3465 -p 3993:3993 -p 3995:3995 \
  -e GREENMAIL_OPTS='-Dgreenmail.setup.test.all -Dgreenmail.hostname= -Dgreenmail.auth.disabled -Dgreenmail.verbose' \
$ cargo test -p email-lib
