Can’t get email from POP3 or IMAP4 server with Airxmail.
Can’t send email to SMTP server with Airxmail.
But Why ?

But It is difficult to make the answer.
Because Airxmail is a library to communicate servers.
So you should know which is the problem, server or client ?

But How ??

Airxmail library support flex logging(mx.logging) functions.
So you can get debug logs using this functions.
The log text show you the communication between server and client.

1.Log sample ( IMAP and POP3 )
2.How to use flex logging functions.
  2-1 ) Output using standard( trace() ) classes.
  2-2 ) Output to file instead of trace()

Log sample

2.How to use flex logging functions

Flex logging function is not depends output facility.
So you can decide the log output facility.
1st step: explain how to use flex logging using the class in FLEX SDK ( not depends on any library to output log )
2nd step: explain how to write log file using my classes
Because standard classes in FLEX SDK in only support standard output(?) ( trace() output ) as far as I know.

2-1 )

import mx.logging.Log;
import mx.logging.LogEventLevel;
import mx.logging.LogLogger;
import mx.logging.targets.TraceTarget;

private function init():void{
	var logTarget:TraceTarget = new TraceTarget();
	logTarget.filters = ["*"];
	logTarget.includeCategory = true;
	logTarget.level = LogEventLevel.DEBUG;

Please invoke init method in your initialize step.
In my usual case, I write these code.

<mx:WindowedApplication xmlns:mx="" width="100%" height="100%" xmlns:local="*"

That’s all.
You don’t need to write stace() function in your code.

You can see these code in airxmail library.

private static const log:ILogger = Log.getLogger("com.coltware.airxmail.imap.IMAP4Client");
private static const _log:ILogger = Log.getLogger("com.coltware.airxmail_internal.IMAP4");
_log.debug("CMD[" + cmd + "]");

Airxmail output a log automatically using flex logging functions.
You can see more detail at
Flex logging function is many functions , like filter output and change output format etc …

Current Airxmail subversion repository version has these 2 category.

“com.coltware.airxmail_internal.*” is low level log like protocol debug.
“com.coltware.airxmail.*” is more user level log.
But there was not clearly border, so please check the source code if you want to know more detail.

2-2 )
use FileTarget class in airxlib library.
FileTarget class support to write log file on your desktop pc.

import com.coltware.airxlib.log.FileTarget;

private function init():void{

  var fileTarget:FileTarget = new FileTarget(); = File.desktopDirectory;  //  set directory path
  fileTarget.filename = "airxmail.log";              //  set filename
  fileTarget.append = false;                             
  fileTarget.filters = ["*"];
  fileTarget.includeCategory = true;
  fileTarget.level = LogEventLevel.DEBUG;

I made air app that it convert o’reilly ebook app file to epub file.

STEP1 ) Buy o’reilly ebooks from Android market.

If ebook app support to export epub format, please use it. But some app doesn’t support ….

ex) Flex4 Cookbook, and etc ….

Then Go on the Next Step….

STEP2 ) copy to sdcard from apk file using appMonster or other app…..

STEP3 ) mount android to PC using USB cable.

STEP4 ) Install “export epub” app and execute it.

STEP5 ) Drag and drop to the following image. Then wait a minute.
Screen shows “DONE” label. Then you can find epub file in the same directory.

I don’t know the app can extract epub file from iPhone app because I don’t have mac and iphone.
This air application use airxzip library.
airxzip library is as3 zip library for Adobe AIR.

Complete STARTTLS sample code

import com.coltware.airxmail.INetAddress;
import com.coltware.airxmail.MailSender.SMTPSender;
import com.coltware.airxmail.MimeMessage;
import com.coltware.airxmail.RecipientType;
import com.hurlant.crypto.tls.TLSSocket;

var sender:SMTPSender;

public function main():void{

public function initSender():void{
	sender = new SMTPSender();
	//  STARTTLS Handler

public function startTlsHandler(event:SMTPEvent):void{
	var sock:Socket = event.socket as Socket;
	var tls:TLSSocket = new TLSSocket();

public function sendPlainText():void{
	var mimeMsg:MimeMessage = new MimeMessage();
	var from:INetAddress = new INetAddress();
	from.personal = "Sample User";
	from.address = "";
	var toAddr:INetAddress = new INetAddress("toemail@xxxxxxx.xxxx","to address");
	// set mail subject
	mimeMsg.setSubject("Hello Airxmail");
	mimeMsg.setTextBody("this is body\r\n2n line");

starttls event fired if SMTP EHLO command result has STARTTLS.
