Python Script Check Imap Account

To check the unread mail count in my IMAP account, i created a little Python sript. But because i don’t want to query the server every second, I’m caching the value in a file and update it every 30 seconds. Create a cronjob or similiar to update the file.

#!/usr/bin/env python

import imaplib

obj = imaplib.IMAP4_SSL('xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx', '993')
obj.login('user', 'password')
print len(obj.search(None, 'UnSeen')[1][0].split())
