Remarks

Number of messages found in the mailbox (POP3 protocol)

The total number of received messages is returned by EmailNbMessage.
If a message was deleted by EmailDeleteMessage in the same email session:
  • EmailNbMessage returns the number of messages found on the email server before the 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 message #1 is deleted:
  • EmailNbMessage returns 4.
  • get of message 1 with function EmailReadMessage is impossible: the message no longer exists. The Email.Out variable returns True. Only the messages 2, 3, and 4 exist.
The message numbers are re-assigned during the next connection.
WINDEV

Number of messages found in the mailbox (Outlook messaging)

The total number of received messages is returned by EmailNbMessage.
If a message was deleted by EmailDeleteMessage in the same email session, EmailNbMessage returns the actual number of messages in the inbox folder.

The attached files

When reading a message, the attached files can be copied to the local disk (or to the server disk) using 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.
