Stored procedures
Reads the header of the email found before the current email:
  • via the POP3 or IMAP protocol: the email is found in the in-box on the messaging server.
The different variables of email structure (or Email variable) corresponding to the message header are filled.
This function is useful when reading the email is linked to the message size for example.
The Email.Out variable is set to True if no email is found.
Reminder: Before reading an email, a session must be started by EmailStartSession, EmailStartNotesSession or EmailStartOutlookSession.
Example
// Deletes the emails sent by "black-listed" senders
// Browse the emails
// Read the header only
// (to save bandwidth)
// If the email is "black-listed", delete it
// Then, the "authorized" emails can be read
// later on
IF EmailReadLastHeader(MyPOPSession) THEN
LOOP
// Is the sender "black listed"?
IF BlackListedSender(Email.SenderAddress) OR ...
BlackListedSender(Email.Sender) THEN
EmailDeleteMessage(MyPOPSession)
END
DO WHILE EmailReadPreviousHeader(MyPOPSession)
END
