downloadMail Plugin: Archive Setting
I would like the downloadMail plugin to archive emails instead of deleting them. I am using IMAP and have created a folder in the email account called "archive". I have specified the folder in the settings as:
'archive' => 'archive', // IMAP Only, move messages to this folder instead of deleting them
However the emails are still being deleted. I guess the folder path is incorrect... how can I confirm what the folder path is?
The folder name format may differ depending on mail client, but two that I'm aware of will prefix them with "INBOX." or "INBOX/" so in your case, you can try "INBOX.archive" and "INBOX/archive".
You can also try looking in your background task log - I believe that if the plugin fails to archive it will output a list of available folders in its task log output.
Let me know if you're able to make any progress; there may be some alternate options to find the folder name if the above doesn't work.
The next step I'd take would be to build a script that connects to the mailbox and runs PHP's imap_list() manually to retrieve a list of all folders. The PHP documentation page (https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.imap-list.php) has a simple example that should work in most cases, and just require swapping in the correct host/user/password.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
