Hi there

I want to use IMAP4's Search method to search for recent messages that have already been seen on Lotus Domino. Iam using "RECENT SEEN" as the condtion to do the same.

I read in one of the discussions that certain SEARCH commands are ignored by Lotus Domino. I can vouch that just SEEN works while RECENT doesnt work at all. Is there a way to work around to this problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

RECENT and SEEN are different things. SEEN means message is read, i.e. it has been downloaded. Read/unread (old/new) statuses in IMAP mailers (e.g. Outlook Express or Mozilla Thunderbird) are based on SEEN flag.

RECENT means the message is new for certain IMAP session. No matter whether your application downloaded RECENT message or not, it'll become not RECENT in the next IMAP session.

We believe operating with SEEN flag is enough in your case.

Best regards,
