Access incoming emails with openhab


I want to parse incoming emails and set some items based on the content of the mail.

From my research in the past this was possible with IFTTT. Does anyone can recommend an alternative solution to read emails?

Thanks in advance

Mail binding?

My understanding of the mail binding is, that it can only send emails and you can get a count of unread / total emails, but you don’t have access to your mailbox itself

You are correct.

Hi @Matze0211 , how did you solve your topic? are you now able to parse and/or access incoming emails? thx for reply

Using the smarthome/j mail binding version, which gives acres to the content:

cool, thx for the hint. “content” is not described in the openhab documentation, therefore I didn’t find this feature:

Yes, the other binding is an alternative version with more features

I am running OH 3.4.2 but I can only see the mail count option.
How do I get the version that has the extra options?

That’s explained here:
