I am needing a list of the smtp commands from winsock. I am trying to write an app to query the mail server, and i have gottent this far, but i cant figure out how to request only new mail, and not mail that has been read. The list will help me in later development.

Thank You

I think you might look rather at this one:
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0821.txt

and search for the "new mail" text. This should explain what you need (except the vb part which i guess you know from above)

That new mail is talking about creating a new mail... I am needing to recieve a number of new mails in my box. Currently i can get it to tell me that i have ### of mails in my box, but i am not sure how to distinguish between new and read mail...
