(Chilkat2-Python) POP3 SSH Tunneling (Port Forwarding)

Demonstrates how to connect to a POP3 server through an SSH tunnel. Reads a POP3 mailbox and display the FROM and SUBJECT header fields of each email.

# This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
# See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

# The mailman object is used for receiving (POP3) 
# and sending (SMTP) email.
mailman = chilkat2.MailMan()

# The SSH hostname may be a hostname or an 
# IP address, such as "192.168.1.108".
# The port is typically 22 (the standard port for SSH).
sshHostname = "www.my-ssh-server.com"
sshPort = 22

# Connect to an SSH server and establish the SSH tunnel:
success = mailman.SshOpenTunnel(sshHostname,sshPort)
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()

# Authenticate with the SSH server via a login/password
# or with a public key.
# This example demonstrates SSH password authentication.
# Note: This is not authenticating with the POP3 server, it is
# for authenticating with the SSH server, which is separate.
success = mailman.SshAuthenticatePw("ssh_login","ssh_password")
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()

# OK, the SSH tunnel is setup.  The mailman may
# be used exactly the same as usual, except all communications
# are now sent through the SSH tunnel.

# The SSH tunnel may be kept open for any number of 
# POP3 connections.  

# Set the POP3 server's hostname
mailman.MailHost = "mail.my-pop3-server.com"

# Set the POP3 settings for your POP3 server:
mailman.PopUsername = "pop3_login"
mailman.PopPassword = "pop3_password"
mailman.MailPort = 995
mailman.PopSsl = True

# Connect to the POP3 server through the already-established SSH tunnel:
success = mailman.Pop3BeginSession()
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()

# A visual inspection of the LastErrorText after
# a successful POP3 connection will confirm the SSH tunneling.
# Note: If the POP3 connection uses SSL/TLS, then the SSL/TLS 
# secure channel will be wrapped within the SSH tunnel.
print(mailman.LastErrorText)

# How many messages are in the POP3 inbox?
numToDownload = mailman.GetMailboxCount()
if (numToDownload > 5):
    numToDownload = 5

if (numToDownload == 0):
    sys.exit()

# Download a max of 5 messages

for i in range(1,(numToDownload)-1):
    # email is a CkEmail
    email = mailman.FetchByMsgnum(i)
    if (mailman.LastMethodSuccess == False):
        print(mailman.LastErrorText)
        sys.exit()

    print(email.From)
    print(email.Subject)
    print("----")

# Close the connection with the POP3 server, leaving the SSH tunnel open for subsequent POP3 connections.
success = mailman.Pop3EndSession()
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()

# Try connecting to a different POP3 server through the same aleady setup SSH tunnel:
# Set the POP3 server's hostname
mailman.MailHost = "mail.my-pop3-server2.com"

# Set the POP3 settings for your POP3 server:
mailman.PopUsername = "pop3_login2"
mailman.PopPassword = "pop3_password2"
mailman.MailPort = 110
mailman.PopSsl = False

success = mailman.Pop3BeginSession()
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()

# Review the LastErrorText to see that the connection was made via the SSH tunnel:
print(mailman.LastErrorText)

success = mailman.Pop3EndSession()
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()

# Close the SSH tunnel.
success = mailman.SshCloseTunnel()
if (success != True):
    print(mailman.LastErrorText)
    sys.exit()
