    Default API for Searching and Retrieving Emails


    I have a CRM system written in Java that handled emails for all employees. It currently retrieves the emails and stores themm in a DB and the CRM system handles the emails just like a email client does.

    I would like to know if Zimbra has APIs to allow retrieving Emails from the Zimbra Email Accounts and also searching for Emails(given a search criteria). Also it would query/retrieve other folders such as Sent, Trash etc. Does Zimbra have APIs that can do this and if so could you post a link to those APIs so I can check them out.

    Thanks Very Much!

    Hi Jason,

    As you know, zimbra has soap api "SearchRequest" for searching mails.
    To get detail info about that, you better check out soap.txt, which is in ZimbraServer/docs folder of source code repo.
    And also you better see Zimbra Web Client Search Tips - Zimbra :: Wiki .
    This give you some instruction about how to write query in "SearchRequest".

    I hope it will guide you through.
