#69 Searching by Labels not working?


I have been running an script to process new Mails marked with a certain Label.

since almost 2 months, It has stopped working.

Traceback states that issue is regarding getMessageByLabel method:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "GmailDown-v5.py", line 35, in <module>
result = ga.getMessagesByLabel('Mail_new', True)

    libgmail hasn't been maintained in quite some time, so it's not surprising to me that it's stopped working. I'd encourage you to instead check out Python's imap library to access Gmail via its IMAP interface -- this should be far less brittle to changes that Google makes to Gmail.
