New Features and Enhancements

Adding Custom Flag to Messages using IMAP: This month’s release introduces a new feature of adding custom flags to a message on the server using the API’s ImapClient. Custom flags can be added to a message using the AddMessageFlags method using the ImageMessageFlags. This is as illustrated in the code sample below.

// Create a message
MailMessage message = new MailMessage("", "", "subject", "message");

//Append the message to mailbox
string uid = client.AppendMessage(ImapFolderInfo.InBox, message);

//Add custom flags to the added messge
client.AddMessageFlags(uid, ImapMessageFlags.Keyword("custom1") | ImapMessageFlags.Keyword("custom1_0"));

//Retreive the messages for checking the presence of custom flag

ImapMessageInfoCollection messageInfos = client.ListMessages();
foreach (var inf in messageInfos)
    ImapMessageFlags[] flags = inf.Flags.Split();

    if (inf.ContainsKeyword("custom1"))
        Console.WriteLine("Keyword found");

Filtering Messages based on Custom Flags: Not only you can add custom flags to messages on server using the API’s ImapClient, you can also filter messages by specifying custom flags. The ImapQueryBuilder’s HasFlags and HasNoFlags can be used for this purpose as shown in code sample below.

ImapQueryBuilder queryBuilder = new ImapQueryBuilder();



Skipping Inline Images during Email Conversion: Email messages with multiple or large size images embedded in them can take considerable time and system resources during conversion to MHTML format. This month’s release provides the capability to skip inline images from including in output MHTML using the MhtSaveOptions class’s SkipInlineImages property. Setting this flag avoids writing inline images from message body to output MHTML.

mhtSaveOptions.SkipInlineImages = true;

eml.Save(Path.Combine(dataDir, "EmlToMhtmlWithoutInlineImages_out.mht"), mhtSaveOptions);
