IMAP Plugin not marking server mail "read"

Post by Mark » Fri Jan 13, 2006 8:04 pm

Hi all,
I know nothing about this technology. So sorry if this is a dumb question. But why can I delete mail from my IMAP server, but not have it marked "read" if I preview the message in PopTray?

BTW, I'm using Renier's IMAP plugin

Thanks in advance,

Renier's plugin doesn't recognise messages as 'read' only messages which are present. This is because the POP3 system for which the program was designed relies on the fact that to read a message, you remove it from the server. Poptray 'remember's the messages its seen while the program is running.

To do what you require you need to download one of the other IMAP plugins as shown on the plugins page. I don't think there's a live link to the one I wrote, but there is a C++ version available also. Both are not without their issues, but try each and if there are any problems you'd like me to look into, do not hesistate to post to the forum or to pm or email me.
I'm sure someone else [cue KY Dave ;) ] who will post the relevant links!
