If you’ve been looking for an iOS library for handling the e-mail protocols SMTP and IMAP and handling message encoding I’ve found an excellent open source library by Matt Ronge known as MailCore that handles all the complexities for you.

As the homepage states:

MailCore is a Mac and iOS framework designed to ease the pain of dealing with e-mail protocols. MailCore makes the process of sending e-mail easy by hiding the nasty details like MIME composition from you. Instead, there is a nice interface for composing messages and then there is a single method required to send the message. Checking e-mail on an IMAP server is a more complex beast, but MailCore makes the job much simpler by presenting everything as a set of abstract objects like Messages, Folders and Accounts.

There are a number of submodules, you can download everything with git using:

git clone https://github.com/mronge/MailCore.git
cd MailCore/
git submodule update --init

You can find the MailCore homepage here be sure to check out the getting started guide.

A great library to keep in mind in case you ever find yourself needing to deal with e-mail protocols.
