This technical tip explains how .NET developers can Copy Message from one Mailbox folder to another. Aspose.Email API provides the capability to copy message from one mailbox folder to another. It allows copying a single as well as multiple messages using the CopyMessage and CopyMessages methods. The CopyMessages method provides the capability to copy multiple messages from source folder of a mailbox to the destination mailbox folder. The following code sample illustrates this by copying two messages.

  1. //Copying Multiple Messages From One Folder to Another
  2.  
  3. //[C# Code Sample]
  4.  
  5. using (ImapClient client = new ImapClient("exchange.aspose.com", "username", "password" ))
  6. {
  7. //create the destination folder
  8. string folderName = "EMAILNET-35242";
  9. if (!client.ExistFolder(folderName))
  10. client.CreateFolder(folderName);
  11.  
  12. try
  13. {
  14. //Append a couple of messages to the server
  15. MailMessage message1 = new MailMessage(
  16. "[email protected]",
  17. "[email protected]",
  18. "EMAILNET-35242 - " + Guid.NewGuid().ToString(),
  19. "EMAILNET-35242 Improvement of copy method.Add ability to 'copy' multiple messages per invocation.");
  20. string uniqueId1 = client.AppendMessage(message1);
  21.  
  22. MailMessage message2 = new MailMessage(
  23. "[email protected]",
  24. "[email protected]",
  25. "EMAILNET-35242 - " + Guid.NewGuid().ToString(),
  26. "EMAILNET-35242 Improvement of copy method.Add ability to 'copy' multiple messages per invocation.");
  27. string uniqueId2 = client.AppendMessage(message2);
  28.  
  29. //verify that the messages have been added to the mailbox
  30. client.SelectFolder(ImapFolderInfo.InBox);
  31. ImapMessageInfoCollection msgsColl = client.ListMessages();
  32. foreach (ImapMessageInfo msgInfo in msgsColl)
  33. Console.WriteLine(msgInfo.Subject);
  34.  
  35. //copy multiple messages using hte CopyMessages command
  36. client.CopyMessages(new string[] { uniqueId1, uniqueId2 }, folderName, true);
  37.  
  38. //Verify that messages are copied to the destination folder
  39. client.SelectFolder(folderName);
  40. msgsColl = client.ListMessages();
  41. foreach (ImapMessageInfo msgInfo in msgsColl)
  42. Console.WriteLine(msgInfo.Subject);
  43. }
  44. finally
  45. {
  46. try {
  47. client.DeleteFolder(folderName);
  48. }

  58. If Not client.ExistFolder(folderName) Then
  59. client.CreateFolder(folderName)
  60. End If
  61.  
  62. Try
