Hi,

I am using OpenPOP3 API (sourceforge.net/projects/hpop/) for reading and sending my GMAIL messages.

Questions:

1) When I am using 'Pop3Client.GetMessageCount()' code, I am getting a count of messages present in INBOX + SENT MAIL. Is there a way I can get only those emails which are present in INBOX folder but not in other customized folders?

2) Is there a way to check whether the email is READ or in UNREAD mode ?

Thanks in advance !

This sounds like a problem with GMAIL. With POP3 you can only expose one folder and it sounds as if GMAIL is exposing the "All Mail" folder, not the in-box. A bit of googling seems t confirm this.

POP3 knows nothing of read or unread, it only allows you to list, download and delete.

If you want to do folders and read/unread then you need to use IMAP.

Check out the google developer pages for GMAIL APIs
