Inbox & Folders

When working with the Inbox and Folder you can perform nine actions: Post (Add New Folder), Put (Update A Folder/Move A Message Between Folders), Delete (Delete A Message/Folder), Get (Get Inbox Message/Folder By ID), Index (Get All Messages/All Folders). The code samples below use the shared libraries:
· SmsTextingBase.py
· SmsTextingJSON.py
· SmsTextingXML.py
You can download them, along with the code samples here: PythonLib.zip.
