This command will return to you a dict. At the top level, there will be a key per message number (starting from 1). Subsequent keys are: From, To, Subject, Date, and Body. See Examples for details.

If you want to know how many email messages you have in the dict, you can use [dict size $MyEmailDict].

Currently, you must elect to always download all messages and leave them on the server or delete them all.

Currently, SSL/TLS use has not been tested.

Note that this command will not try to process or recover from any errors thrown from the imap4 package. If you do get an error, double check that you are using the correct values for your arguments and the config variables. In particular, pay attention to which port number you use and your account name. If you do get an error, double check that you are using the correct values for your arguments.
