To output the type and ID of all items available via this listing do:

async for item in reddit.inbox.all(limit=None):
    print(repr(item))
await collapse(items: List[asyncpraw.models.Message])

    if isinstance(item, Message):
        unread_messages.append(item)
await reddit.inbox.collapse(unread_messages)
comment_replies(**generator_kwargs: Union[str, int, Dict[str, str]]) AsyncIterator[asyncpraw.models.Comment]

Additional keyword arguments are passed in the initialization of ListingGenerator.

To output the author of one request worth of comment replies try:

async for reply in reddit.inbox.comment_replies():
    print(reply.author)
await mark_all_read()

Mark all messages as read with just one API call.

Keyword arguments are passed to stream_generator().

For example, to retrieve all new inbox items, try:

async for item in reddit.inbox.stream():
    print(item)
submission_replies(**generator_kwargs: Union[str, int, Dict[str, str]]) AsyncIterator[asyncpraw.models.Comment]
