Fetching the Body of an Unread Mail During a Read-Only Session Flags the Mail As Read.

Oracle Communications Messaging Exchange Server - Version: 7u2-7 and later   [Release: 7u2 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A read-only connection is being made to an IMAP server, by opening the mail box with the imap EXAMINE command.  When during this session, the body of an unread mail is being fetched, this mail becomes flagged as read.

This was not happening with Messaging Server 5.2, but yet, it happens after our upgrade to Messaging Server 7.

Why is this happening on a read-only session ?

Btw. when creating afterwards an interactive session ( with the imap SELECT command ), the mail does not seem to be read after all.


Upgrading from Messaging Server to version 7u2-7.02 or higher
