    Hi..,
    I try to find how to read email or maybe just the subject programmatically, but can not find.
    I found that there is no API for email?

    thanks for any reply/ info

    Be a bit more specific: Do you want IMAP (available for GMail), POP (available for GMail), webmail, built-in EMail storage, built-in GMail storage (...) . The first three are definitely possible, but would require the user to enter his credentials; The rest I'm not so sure about.

    I think you can if you have the user enable IMAP/POP3 for their Gmail. I think hansschmucker had the right advice for you there.

    Google tends to be less open about their own apps. :\
