#  Anything unlocks the component and begins a fully-functional 30-day trial.
$success = $imap.UnlockComponent("Anything for 30-day trial")
if ($success -ne $true) {
    $($imap.LastErrorText)
    exit
}

#  Connect to an IMAP server.
$success = $imap.Connect("mail.chilkatsoft.com")
if ($success -ne $true) {
    $($imap.LastErrorText)
    exit
}

#  Login
$success = $imap.Login("admin@chilkatsoft.com","*myPassword5*")
if ($success -ne $true) {
    $($imap.LastErrorText)

#  Select an IMAP mailbox

#  We can choose to fetch UIDs or sequence numbers.
$fetchUids = $true

#  Here are examples of different search criteria:

#  Return all messages.
$allMsgs = "ALL"

#  Search for already-answered emails.
$answered = "ANSWERED"

#  Search for messages on a specific date.
#  The date string is DD-Month-YYYY where Month is
#  Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, or Dec.
$onDate = "SENTON 05-Mar-2007"

#  Search for messages between two dates.  SENTBEFORE
#  finds emails sent before a date, and SENTSINCE finds
#  email sent on or after a date.  The "AND" operation
#  is implied by joining criteria, separated by spaces.
$betweenDates = "SENTSINCE 01-Mar-2007 SENTBEFORE 05-Mar-2007"

#  Another example of AND: find all unanswered emails
#  sent after 04-Mar-2007 with "Problem" in the subject:
$complexSearch1 = "UNANSWERED SENTSINCE 04-Mar-2007 Subject `"Problem`""

#  Find messages with a specific string in the body:
$bodySearch = "BODY `"problem solved`""

#  Using OR.  The syntax is OR <criteria1> <criteria2>.
#  The "OR" comes first, followed by each criteria.
#  For example, to match all emails with "Help" or "Question" in the subject.
#  You'll notice that literal strings may be quoted or unquoted.
#  If a literal contains SPACE characters, quote it:
$orSearch = "OR SUBJECT Help SUBJECT Question"

#  ----------------------------------------------
#  Strings are case-insensitive when searching....
#  ----------------------------------------------

#  Find all emails sent from yahoo.com addresses:
$fromSearch = "FROM yahoo.com"
#  Find all emails sent from anyone with "John" in their name:
$johnSearch = "FROM John"

#  Find emails with the RECENT flag set:
$recentSearch = "RECENT"

#  Find emails that don't have the recent flag set:
$notRecentSearch = "NOT RECENT"
#  This is synonymous with "OLD":
$oldSearch = "OLD"

#  Find all emails marked for deletion:
$markedForDeleteSearch = "DELETED"

#  Find all emails having a specified header field with a value
#  containing a substring:
$headerSearch = "HEADER DomainKey-Signature paypal.com"

#  Find any emails having a specific header field.  If the
#  2nd argument to the "HEADER" criteria is an empty string,
#  any email having the header field is returned regardless
#  of the header field's content.
#  Find any emails with a DomainKey-Signature field:
$headerExistsSearch = "HEADER DomainKey-Signature `"`""

#  Find NEW emails: these are emails that have the RECENT flag
#  set, but not the SEEN flag:
$newSearch = "NEW"

#  Find emails larger than a certain number of bytes:
$sizeLargerSearch = "LARGER 500000"

#  Find emails marked as seen or not already seen:
$seenSearch = "SEEN"
$notSeenSearch = "NOT SEEN"

#  Find emails having a given substring in the TO header field:
$toSearch = "TO support@chilkatsoft.com"
#  A more long-winded way to do the same thing:
$toSearch2 = "HEADER TO support@chilkatsoft.com"

#  Find emails smaller than a size in bytes:
$smallerSearch = "SMALLER 30000"

#  Find emails that have a substring anywhere in the header
#  or body:
$fullSubstringSearch = "TEXT `"Zip Component`""

#  Pass any of the above strings here to test a search:
$messageSet = $imap.Search($orSearch,$fetchUids)
if ($messageSet -eq $null ) {
    $($imap.LastErrorText)
    exit
}

#  Fetch the email headers into a bundle object:

$bundle = $imap.FetchHeaders($messageSet)
if ($bundle -eq $null ) {

    $($imap.LastErrorText)
    exit
}

#  Display the Subject and From of each email.

for ($i = 0; $i -le $bundle.MessageCount - 1; $i++) {

    $email = $bundle.GetEmail($i)

    $($email.GetHeaderField("Date"))
    $($email.Subject)
    $($email.From)
    $("--")

}

#  Disconnect from the IMAP server.
$imap.Disconnect()
