hi experts, especially in c# and the mail area
I am after a project in visual studios 2005 that will allow me to IMAP into my mail server and read and also be able to move the mail between folders select and read the messages.
I have a fair bit of code but none that allows me to or show me how to move the mail between the folders.
any help would be appreciated
thanks in advance

Hello
I have had a hard time looking for something like this myself.
As I am not very familiar with telnet and smtp/imap commands, I am unable to create my own assembly for this.

But I have found this :

That is something you will need to purchase.
The company I work for purchased a license, and it seems to work good.
It gives you a possibility to access all inboxes and read mail. Probably also move and delete as well. But you will need to check that out.

Hope it helped :-)

The link should of course be this:

The previous link was for ActiveX.
My apologies.

I already have the code running to access the system download the files, extract and send,
the hard part is already done, i just need to be able to move the files, as i am tailoring the system to do large scale manipulations of data i believe in the long run it is far better not to have to buy a non modifable product to do the job that i know can be done. Some one must have ran into this problem before and i have just come across the answer yet. But its nice to know that it was just not me that could not find any info
thanks for you input but will have to press on to get and answer
