Remarks

The email structure and the Email variables

Two methods can be used to handle the emails:
  • The Email structure is a global structure used to easily handle a message.
  • The Email variables offer more advanced features (databinding, serialization, multiple instances).
When reading the email, the email structure is automatically updated according to the content of the message.
The Email.Cci and Email.NbCci variables (or the ..Cci property when using an Email variable) are cleared.

The attached files

When reading a message, the files attached to this message can be copied onto the local disk (or onto the server disk) by EmailSaveAttachment.
Tip: We recommend that you save the messages and their attached files on the local disk (or on a server disk), then delete them from the email server. This operation is used to:
  • reduce the size of the mailbox on the server,
  • improve and speed up the communications for the POP3 servers: only the new messages will be read on the server.
