Detailed Description

Base class for jobs that operate on mailbox metadata.

Provides support for the IMAP METADATA extension; both the final RFC version (RFC 5464) and the older, incompatible draft version (known as ANNOTATEMORE) (draft-daboo-imap-annotatemore-07).

This class cannot be used directly, you must subclass it and reimplement at least the doStart() method.

Definition at line 35 of file metadatajobbase.h.

Member Enumeration Documentation

Represents the capability level of the server.


Used to indicate that the server supports the RFC 5464 version of the extension.

This corresponds to the METADATA server capability.


Used to indicate that the server supports the draft-daboo-imap-annotatemore-07 version of the extension.

This corresponds to the ANNOTATEMORE server capability.

Member Function Documentation

QString MetaDataJobBase::mailBox ( ) const

The mailbox that will be acted upon.

If this is an empty string, server metadata will be retrieved.

a mailbox name, or an empty string

Definition at line 72 of file metadatajobbase.cpp.

MetaDataJobBase::ServerCapability MetaDataJobBase::serverCapability ( ) const

The version of the metadata extension that will be used.

Definition at line 84 of file metadatajobbase.cpp.

void MetaDataJobBase::setMailBox ( const QString mailBox)

Set the mailbox to act on.

This may be an empty string, in which case metadata for the server (rather than a specific mailbox) will be retrieved.

mailBoxthe name of an existing mailbox, or an empty string

Definition at line 66 of file metadatajobbase.cpp.

void MetaDataJobBase::setServerCapability ( ServerCapability  capability)

Set what version of the metadata extension to be compatible with.

This will determine the commands that will be sent to the server.

The draft for the metadata extension changed in an incompatible way between versions 7 and 8, and some servers support version 7. It should be possible to check which version the server supports using CapabilityJob: servers implementing draft-daboo-imap-annotatemore-07 should advertise the ANNOTATEMORE capability, whereas servers implementing the final RFC 5464 should advertise the METADATA capability.

The default mode is Metadata.
