ASP POP3 Component

I tested ASPPop3 component but am looking for another one.

Case:
1. I am writing a web-based email.
2. User does not want to delete messages on Pop3 server after downloading email.
3. User has a lot of messages that have large attachments (4MB up)

Problem:
1. User checks mail, all messages are downloaded into database.
2. User checks mail again.  I check to see if the messages on the server are already downloaded by matching MsgID.  However, in order to get the MsgID list using ASPPop3, I have to download the whole thing on the server (including attachments).  Downloading these messages (with 4MB attachments ..) takes a lot of time.
3. GetPopHeaders method of ASPPop3 does not get MsgID, it gets "Msg No" that is the order of messages on server.

What I need is a component that can get the MsgID: <akadfalkdk2@yahoo.com234> (not the "Msg No": 1, 2, 3...) without having download everything first.

Does anyone know any component that does so?

Thank you.

Yes, JMail allows you to download the headers without d/l the message.  The POP3 protocol itself determined that the messages or headers are retrieved by a numerical value.

Silvers5,

Could you double check on that for me.  I could not find any information about that.  The only ID ASPPop3 fetches in header (using GetPopHeaders
    rem ******************************************
    rem * GetPopHeaders will automatically open
    rem *  the connection, grab the POP header
    rem *  information and return a variant array
    rem *  consisting of strings:
    rem *  Msg No, Subject, Date, From, Sender, To,
    rem *  Reply-to, and Size
    rem *  the more mail you have the longer it
    rem *  takes to pull this information
    rem ******************************************
is the order of the Msg (1, 2, 3, ...) that I don't need.

However, from one of the links above (I think it was yours) I found www.dynu.com but they don't have that method neither.  I got their email :
>>The latest version of DynuPOP3 now has GetUIDL method which returns a list of MsgID of messages on the POP server. This version has been released just today so please download at http://www.dynu.com/files/dynucom.zip
<<
They are fast (the next day after I sent email to them).  I will test DynuPOP3 when I have time.

But if ASPPop3 can do it, I would stick with it for now.  I don't want to change the code at this time.

I haven't tested the DynuPOP3 component.  However, it has been a long time.  I give points to Silvers5 because the links he provided give information to find that component.

Silvers5,
If you have time to find the information like you said "strange.. I was able to fetch the message headar if i renmember correctly with asppop3.. :", please help me.

Thanks.
