RecentMessages Property  

Returns the number of messages which have recently arrived in the mailbox.




The RecentMessages property returns the number of messages which have been recently added to the currently selected mailbox. This property is particularly useful when the INBOX mailbox is selected because it enables the application to check if any new messages have arrived. To determine the total number of unread messages in the mailbox, use the UnreadMessages property.
