After upgrading from Net::IMAP::Simple 1.2206 to 1.2207, I noticed a change in behaviour of the "get" method. Looking at both version of "" confirmed that some refactoring occurred. In version 1.2206, using "my $msg = $imap->get( $msgid, '1' );" would get an email's body. For version 1.2207 and later, using the same code wield an empty string. To test this, I used the following code: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use utf8; use warnings; use Net::IMAP::Simple::SSL; # Maibox config my $imaphost = ''; my $imapusr = 'emailaccount'; my $imappass = 'password'; my $imap = Net::IMAP::Simple::SSL->new($imaphost) or die "Unable to connect to IMAP"; $imap->login($imapusr, $imappass) or die "Unable to log-in"; my @msgids = $imap->search("UNSEEN"); for my $msgid (@msgids) { my $msg = $imap->get($msgid,'1'); print "$msg\n"; } I use perl v5.24.1 on a Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u1
Oh, I forgot about this issue. Thanks for opening a ticket.
