Hi,

Could I kindly suggest to have TopPop3 deal with unread messages only rather than with all of the messages on the server?

Many thanks in advance for considering my suggestion.

Best regards,
tm

There's no way to tell which messages are read. TopPop3 deals with it by first reporting how many messages are on the server and only reports new messages afterwards.

<brainstorm mode on>
Would a configuration option "Skip messages older then xxx days" do the trick for you?
<brainstorm mode off>

Many thanks for your swift reply indeed!

I am not sure. Probably it would be asking too much to keep track of which messages are read. Possibly MailWidget works this way?

There's no way to tell which messages are read. The only program that can keep track of which messages are read is the program the user is using to read the messages. There are about six popular e-mail clients at the moment and it would be to complicated to try to access them all.

Telling your mail client to delete messages from the server will solve your problem too.

Many thanks for your quick reply!

I also use webmail for my mail account, and the webmail can tell which e-mails are read. So I thought it was easier to tell. Sorry.

Many thanks again, and best regards,

I'm working on an IMAP version which can tell which messages are read.
It will be free for all TopPop3 users.
Please test it and tell me if this is what you're looking for.

You can download it here.
