How To Read Emails Using Java Imaps? – Devstringx

Here we are going to see how email messages can be read by Java-Selenium using Java mail API.

Below I have created a method to get the body content of the mail. It requires 3 parameters username, password, and the subject of the mail. When this method will be called then first it will authenticate  Username and Password then will call getFolder() by store reference variable and pass inbox as a parameter so that it will check inbox folder only.

All the messages are stored in an array so will iterate one by one by using For Loop. When The subject will equal to the given in parameter then it will return the body content of that message.
