MY approach is –
Get the total mail list –
List<Message> totalMessageList = Arrays .asList(folder.getMessages());
Create a list out of this which has only unread mails. (I had to do this coz I could not find a any direct API to get list of new mails. One question which helped in finding whether a message is unread or not was posted here)
List<Message> unreadMessageList = new ArrayList<Message>();
For sake of brevity I have not posted entire logic of building the list of unread mail from list of total mails.
Iterate through the list of unread mails > Check if any mail has desired subject then read content of mail > If no such mail found then throw IllegalStateExcepton
Now my question is – Could I improve on this approach?
Can you use
with the relevant SearchTerm, e.g. FlagTerm for the unread flag
Quick search on Google found this
which might be useful, but I haven’t tried it
