We've got clients with multiple e-mail addresses , like : favouriteclient@yahoo.com and thebestclient@gmail.com. I'm trying to search all the mails from them.
So i'm trying to use searchmail method with "or" argument

oClient.SearchMail("ALL TEXT favouriteclient OR ALL TEXT thebestclient").

BUT THIS DOESN'T WORK! The number of messages it returns is always the same oClient.SearchMail("ALL TEXT favouriteclient OR ALL TEXT thebestclient") returns 44 and (oClient.SearchMail("ALL TEXT favouriteclient") returns the same number.

the correct syntax is:

Code:

 
C# 
oClient.SearchMail( "ALL OR FROM \"favouriteclient@yahoo.com\" FROM \"thebestclient@gmail.com\"" );
 
VB
oClient.SearchMail( "ALL OR FROM ""favouriteclient@yahoo.com"" FROM ""thebestclient@gmail.com""" )

Thanks for the answer!


Few other questions:

Using "OR" more than twice: I'm going to use something like this oClient.SearchMail( "ALL OR FROM ""favouriteclient@yahoo.com"" FROM ""thebestclient@gmail.com"" FROM ""superclient@gmail.com""") , but the third "OR"-argument works incorrectly. What am i doing wrong?

Second question : Is it any possibility to search not for the mailaddress description, but for direct mail?
In example : oClient.SearchMail( "ALL FROM ""favouriteclient@yahoo.com""") gives me nothing because in all incoming mail his address is "J.Hooker".

Hi, in IMAP4 protocol, OR only supports two parameters, if you want to use more, please use the following syntax
Code:

oClient.SearchMail( "ALL OR FROM ""favouriteclient@yahoo.com"" (OR FROM ""thebestclient@gmail.com"" FROM ""superclient@gmail.com"")")


Basically, IMAP4 server should search both mail address and description, it seems that your IMAP4 doesn't support it.
you can try the following code
Code:

oClient.SearchMail( "ALL HEADER ""From"" ""favouriteclient@yahoo.com"" )
