Folder Flags

This example shows how to use the GemBox.Email library to list IMAP folders and their flags.

using GemBox.Email;
using GemBox.Email.Imap;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class Program
    static void Main()
        // If using the Professional version, put your serial key below.

        using (ImapClient imap = new ImapClient("<ADDRESS> (e.g."))
            imap.Authenticate("<USERNAME>", "<PASSWORD>");

            // Select INBOX folder.

            // List INBOX folder flags.
            IList<ImapFolderInfo> folders = imap.ListFolders();
            foreach (string flag in imap.SelectedFolder.Flags)
Imports GemBox.Email
Imports GemBox.Email.Imap
Imports System
Imports System.Collections.Generic

Module Program

    Sub Main()

        ' If using the Professional version, put your serial key below.

        Using imap As New ImapClient("<ADDRESS> (e.g.")

            imap.Authenticate("<USERNAME>", "<PASSWORD>")

            ' Select INBOX folder.

            ' List INBOX folder flags.
            Dim folders As IList(Of ImapFolderInfo) = imap.ListFolders()
            For Each flag As String In imap.SelectedFolder.Flags
        End Using
    End Sub
End Module

IMAP folder flags provide additional information about a folder, such as if a folder is selected, if it has any subfolders, etc.

GemBox.Email represents each folder's flags with a read-only ImapFolderInfo.Flags collection. The possible flags that can occur are listed as an ImapFolderFlag enumeration.
