Project Description

You will write a ruby library to log into email accounts with the following providers:

1) Gmail

2) Yahoo

3) Hotmail

4) AOL

5) Comcast

6) Zoho

7) Outlook

8) [url removed, login to view]

Then, given a from address, subject line, and body of the email, you have to tell me if the email is in the inbox, the spam box, or not there at all. If the email is in the inbox or the spam box, then also return the number of times it appears.

The code should be able to run without using a browser window. All from the command line or inside a script. So do not use watir, or any other browser mimic-ing software. I would suggest looking into IMAP.
