Here is the code that I used to get the number of email from Gmail in C#.

/// <summary>
/// Get the Number of Email
/// </summary>
/// <param name=”userName”></param>
/// <param name=”passWord”></param>
/// <returns></returns>
private int GetNumberOfMail(string userName, string passWord)
XmlDocument xmldoc = GetGmailFeed(userName, passWord);
XmlNodeList count = xmldoc.GetElementsByTagName(“fullcount”);
return int.Parse(count[0].InnerText);
/// <summary>
/// Get the Gmail Atom Feed
/// Adapted from Kevin Daly
/// http://www.dotnetjunkies.com/WebLog/kevdaly/archive/2004/12/24/38612.aspx
/// </summary>
/// <param name=”userName”></param>
/// <param name=”password”></param>
/// <returns></returns>
private static XmlDocument GetGmailFeed(string userName, string password)
HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(“https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/&#8221;);
req.Method = “GET”;
req.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(userName, password);
XmlDocument response = new XmlDocument();
HttpWebResponse resp;
resp = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse();
if (resp.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.OK)
XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(resp.GetResponseStream());
catch Console.WriteLine(“Error… HttpWebResponse”);
return response;

Note: I do not guarantee this code will always work. Use it at your own risk.

  1. If you could, send me a email, when you post the code here.

    I made a variant of GetGmailFeed( ) and is working to me.
