Remarks

No next email

If no email was found (no next message), the Email.Out variable is set to True. The next call to EmailReadNext will read the first incoming email (equivalent to EmailReadFirst).

Initializing the reading of emails

If the read operation was not initialized by EmailReadFirst, EmailReadNext is used to read the first message.

Using the POP3 protocol

When reading a message, the files attached to this message can be copied to the local disk with EmailSaveAttachment.
Tip: We recommend that you keep the messages and their attachments on the local disk, then delete them from the server. This operation is used to:
  • reduce the size of the mailbox on the server,
  • improve and speed up the communications in POP3 sessions: only the new messages will be read on the server.

Using MS Exchange

EmailUpdate allows you to receive the messages from the Internet email server when using MS Exchange.
When reading a message, the files attached to this message are copied into the temporary directory of Windows. The full name of these files are stored in Email.Attach. These attached files can be copied by fCopyFile.
Windows Mobile

Using Pocket Outlook

When reading a message, the files attached to this message can be copied to the local disk with EmailSaveAttachment.
