STATUS implemented?

Is it possible to get basic statistics on a folder (# messages, # unread) without grabbing all of the message data? I'm implementing something which has to mirror an inbox and I need a relatively efficient mechanism for finding the most recently added messages without having to pull down all of a large inbox every time. The STATUS command would be very helpful but I don't think it's implemented from looking at the source?

I guess to answer my own question, the folder.Examine() ; folder.Recent and folder.Exists probably give me what I need, so you can ignore this request. Some even brief documentation on the different folder properties would be useful if you have time.

Hi Darren,

you're right, simply use the Examine method. I will think about implementing the STATUS command in separate method as well.

Best regards,
