Chili!POP3 Message Interface

The Chili!POP3 component Message interface provides access to the messages currently in the mail store on the connected server. The properties, methods, and collections of the Message object are used to access those messages.

There are varying network costs associated with accessing the different properties of a message. For POP3 servers that support the optional TOP command, accessing any header information and the first few lines of the message can be accomplished without paying the data transfer overhead of moving the entire message from the server to the client.

Note icon Note When requesting any of the properties that can be gathered without retrieving the entire message, the component first attempts the TOP command. If that command fails, the component then attempts to fulfill the property request via the full message RETR command.
