you can do that in your event by couple of steps:
a) obtain list of all configured accounts with mail_config_get_accounts
b) for all enabled accounts ask for the CamelStore with mail_get_store
c) for each CamelStore ask for a folder info with call of
   mail_get_folderinfo , where you'll receive a folder hierarchy
   for all the folders in the given store
d) then for each folder info ask for a CamelFolder with
e) and finally for messages in a returned folder.

Just take care of not calling camel functions in a main thread. Those
mail_* functions from the above take care of it itself, as they are
async, but I guess the e) will be pure camel call(s) for you.

You can do the same also by only-camel-calls in one thread, except
of a), just mimic working parts of those mentioned functions above.
        Hope that helps,
