I have a few emails I am trying to download from my google account. I seem
to be getting the message but each of these messages have an attachment. I
don't understand what I ned to do to get and save the attachment to a local
file.
Here is what I have so far.
M = imaplib.IMAP4_SSL(IMAP_SERVER, IMAP_PORT)
rc, resp = M.login('xxxxx at xxxx', 'XXXXX')
print rc, resp
M.select('[Gmail]/All Mail')
M.search(None, 'FROM', 'someone at logitech.com')
#M.fetch(121, '(body[header.fields (subject)])')
M.fetch(121, '(RFC822)')
