Remarks

Number of messages found in the mailbox (POP3 protocol)

The total number of incoming messages is returned by EmailNbMessage.
In the same email session, if a message was deleted by EmailDeleteMessage:
  • EmailNbMessage returns the number of messages found on the email server before deletion.
  • the numbers of the deleted messages are not re-assigned.
For example: During the connection, four messages are on found the server. These messages are numbered from 1 to 4. If the message #1 is deleted:
  • EmailNbMessage returns 4.
  • The message #1 cannot be read by EmailReadMessage: the message does not exist anymore. The Email.Out variable returns True. Only the messages 2, 3, and 4 exist.
The message numbers are re-assigned during the next connection.

Number of messages found in the mailbox (Outlook messaging)

The total number of incoming messages is returned by EmailNbMessage.
In the same email session, if a message was deleted by EmailDeleteMessage, EmailNbMessage returns the correct number of messages found in the incoming email folder.

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 on the POP3 servers: only the new messages will be read on the server.
