Returns the number of incoming messages currently found:
  • on the email server (POP3 and IMAP protocol).
    • POP3 protocol: This number of messages remains constant during the entire email session, even if new emails are received or if emails are deleted by EmailDeleteMessage.
    • IMAP protocol: This number of messages evolves according to the incoming emails or to the emails actually deleted from the email server (via an "expunge" commande, clear the bin from a WebMail for example). You also have the ability to force the destruction of all deleted emails via EmailExpunge.
// Loop for reading all the incoming messages found
// in the mailbox of POP3 protocol

Remarks

Deleted messages (POP3 protocol)

If a message was deleted by EmailDeleteMessage:
  • EmailNbMessage returns the number of messages found on the email server before the deletion.
  • the message numbers are not re-assigned.
Therefore, if four messages are found on the server at the beginning of session, these messages are numbered from 1 to 4. If the message #1 is deleted:
  • EmailNbMessage used in the same session always returns 4.
  • Message 1 cannot be read by EmailReadMessage because the message does not exist anymore (only messages 2, 3 and 4 exist).
The message numbers are re-assigned during the next connection.
Reports and Queries

Deleted messages (Outlook messaging)

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.

Deleted messages (IMAP protocol)

If a message was deleted by EmailDeleteMessage, this message is actually deleted from the session:
  • during the next "expunge" command (clear the bin from a WebMail for example).
  • Versions 20 and later
    when using EmailExpunge to force all the deleted emails to be destroyed.
    New in version 20

New messages (POP3 protocol)

The POP3 protocol cannot be used to find out and manage the new messages received during the connection. To get the new messages, you must disconnect (EmailCloseSession) and reconnect (EmailStartSession).
