Remarks

Number of messages found in the mailbox (POP3 protocol)

The total number of messages received is obtained using the EmailNbMessage function.
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 found on the server and these messages are numbered 1 to 4. If message #1 is deleted:
  • EmailNbMessage returns 4.
  • EmailReadMessage or EmailReadMessageHeader cannot read message # 1: 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.
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server code

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.
