Description:

Allows you to send commands to mycroft by email

Want to turn on the tv before you get home? use you phone and tell mycroft to do it

NOTE: you need to edit mycroft.conf before using this skill, there is no GUI to do this yet


# Skill configuration

I did not use mycroft home backend for skill settings, it is irresponsible
to get your email credentials in there. Instead you need to edit mycroft.conf

This is a security measure, i will not change this behaviour

Add the following section to your [mycroft.conf](https://mycroft-ai.gitbook.io/docs/using-mycroft-ai/customizations/mycroft-conf)
```json

"email": {
"mail": "",
"password": "",
"address":"imap.gmail.com",
"port":993,
"folder":"inbox",
"time_between_checks":30,
"whitelist": ["thisemail@isallowed.com", "email@thatcansend.commands"]
}
```

only mail, password and whitelist are required, other parameters use the
defaults for gmail, if using a different provider you might need to change address and port

time_between_checks is in seconds, it is the time to sleep between checking
for new emails, the "lag" between a command and its execution

whitelist is a list of emails allowed to send commands to mycroft, if the
sender is not in this list then the emails will be ignored


# Email configuration

You might need to change some settings in your email provider, for gmail you need to

- enable less secure apps https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps
- enable imap https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/?tab=mm#settings/fwdandpop
