Gmail IMAP to database sync
Sep 24 '14 at 01:28
I am planning to sync Gmail(Google Apps) messages to a local database for a custom application development with Chilkat IMAP component.
- I need some advices before I begin. I know Gmail labels behave like folders/mailboxes, but if I try to sync them all, there will be a lot of duplicates (since same message can have multiple labels)
- There will be tens thousands of messages, what should be a good strategy ? (like getting 100 msgs at a time..)
- Another problem is uniqueness of the messages; what should I store as message ID in db table ?
Thanks in advance..
