C program to retrieve emails to local directory as plain text (over IMAP)?


I would like to export regularly by using a basic program my last emails into a given local directory.

So far there are few solutions but all most of them python or ruby based. Nothing is really made in C or compiled in C++.

There is mutt ; it is small and terminal based, but it cannot export given emails (automatically or manually).
