in reply to Get certain email message flag using IMAP module

I use Net::IMAP::Client to access IMAP mail boxes programmatically and it seems to work well. You can the flags on any message with the get_flags method.

    Thank you for your reply. I have tried it, but i never seen that the flag has been changed within message which i have marked by outlook as completed. The message has always \seen flag, but not any different. Do you know what is the name of the flag for that action" Mark as complete".? Thanks.

      No idea, I don't use Outlook. Can't you just look at a message before it is marked as complete and get the flags then look at it again after marked as complete to see what additional flag it has.


      There is a MailItem.UnRead Property which Returns or sets a Boolean value that is True if the Outlook item has not been opened (read). Read/write.

[erix]: the annoying thing is that during setup of the 'foreign table' you have to specify all the columns. But that is reasonably automatable (just reading header line, and contruct the needed CREATE FOREIGN TABLE' statement)
[erix]: it may be easier to just slurp your fils into regular tables. Has other infrastructure advantages also (indexes, constraints etc)
