check read Email

Post by dglee » 2022-08-09 09:02

I'm developing in C#.

For example, when A sends an email to B, I want to check whether B has read the email. What object should be implemented then?

How do you think you can tell? At best the email client *might* send a 'READ' status tag for the message but there is no guarantee this will happen (people can set their own email clients on how and when to mark messages as read (if, indeed, at all). In other words, people might read the message in their email client and hmailserver may never know.

In any case, the only status marker stored on the database is this: ... ct_message. This will, in any case, only relate to messages read on the server by IMAP and will be no good if youre downloading via POP3.

You will have to try.
