Detailed Description

Used to indicate what message data should be fetched.

This doesn't provide the same fine-grained control over what is fetched that the IMAP FETCH command normally does, but the common cases are catered for.

Member Enumeration Documentation

Used to indicate what part of the message should be fetched.


Fetch RFC-2822 or MIME message headers.

To fetch MIME headers for a MIME part, populate the parts field.

If the RFC-2822 headers are requested (so parts is empty), the returned information is:

  • To, From, Message-id, References In-Reply-To, Subject and Date headers
  • The message size (in octets)
  • The internal date of the message
  • The message flags
  • The message UID

Fetch the message flags (the UID is also fetched)


Fetch the MIME message body structure (the UID is also fetched)


Fetch the message content (the UID is also fetched)

To fetch only certain MIME parts (see Structure), populate the parts field.


Fetch the complete message.


Fetch the message MIME headers and the content of parts specified in the parts field.

If parts is empty, this mode will return the full message, just like FetchScope::Content

Use case:

  1. Start a FetchJob with the FetchScope::Structure mode to retrieve the structure of the message.
  2. Parse the structure to identify the parts that are interesting (ie: probably everything but attachments).
  3. Start another FetchJob with FetchScope::HeaderAndContent to fetch those parts.
  4. At the request of the user, you can repeat the step above to fetch the attachments.

Fetch message size (in octets), internal date of the message, flags, UID and all RFC822 headers.

The parts field is ignored when using this scope

Member Data Documentation

quint64 KIMAP2::FetchJob::FetchScope::changedSince

Specify to fetch only items with mod-sequence higher then changedSince.

The server must have CONDSTORE capability (RFC4551).

Default value is 0 (ignored).

Definition at line 173 of file fetchjob.h.

bool KIMAP2::FetchJob::FetchScope::gmailExtensionsEnabled

Enables retrieving of Gmail-specific extensions.

The FETCH response will contain X-GM-MSGID, X-GM-THRID and X-GM-LABELS

Do NOT enable this, unless talking to Gmail servers, otherwise the request may fail.

Definition at line 183 of file fetchjob.h.

Mode KIMAP2::FetchJob::FetchScope::mode

Specify what message data should be fetched.

Definition at line 163 of file fetchjob.h.

QList<QByteArray> KIMAP2::FetchJob::FetchScope::parts

Specify which message parts to operate on.

This refers to multipart-MIME message parts or MIME-IMB encapsulated message parts.

Note that this is ignored unless mode is Headers or Content.

If mode is Headers, this sets the parts to get the MIME headers for. If this list is empty, the headers for the whole message (the RFC-2822 headers) are fetched.

If mode is Content, this sets the parts to fetch. Parts are fetched wholesale. If this list is empty, the whole message body is fetched (all MIME parts together).
