hello. I have a problem(again). how do I find one last email from 1 sender in POP3? I didn't find anything in the documentation on this topic(maybe just didn't notice, I'm like that). thanks for your help

Best answer

POP3 protocol doesn't support searching.

Please note this is not a limitation of Mail.dll client, but of the protocol itself.

Consider using IMAP client:

thanks for such a quick response. the fact is that I have mail that does not support IMAP search (only works with pop3), is there any way to solve this problem? purely theoretically
No, you'd need to download all emails, parse them and search on client.
sadly. Thanks you
