' See Unlock Imap for sample code.

' Connect to the outlook.com IMAP server.
' We'll do the same for GMail below..
' Use TLS

imap.Port = 993
Dim success As Boolean = imap.Connect("imap-mail.outlook.com")

imap.KeepSessionLog = True

' Select an IMAP mailbox
success = imap.SelectMailbox("Inbox")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(imap.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


' The LastResponse property contains the full response of the last command.
' The response to the SELECT mailbox command shows the FLAGS that can be set
' for emails in the mailbox.
Dim selectResponse As String = imap.LastResponse
Debug.WriteLine(selectResponse)

' The response to "SELECT Inbox" looks like this:
' There are no FLAGS for Junk/NonJunk..

' * 4 EXISTS
' * 0 RECENT
' * FLAGS (\Seen \Answered \Flagged \Deleted \Draft $MDNSent)
' * OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Seen \Answered \Flagged \Deleted \Draft $MDNSent)] Permanent flags
' * OK [UIDVALIDITY 14] UIDVALIDITY value
' * OK [UIDNEXT 1719] The next unique identifier value

' As you can see, nothing is marked as Junk/Spam.  This concurs with the list of FLAGS
' documented in the response to the SELECT command.  Apparently, there is no flag for junk/nonjunk
' for outlook.com.  Mozilla Thunderbird must be storing additional information about particular
' emails locally.  (In other words, perhaps the Junk/NonJunk flag is information stored locally 
' by Thunderbird, and is not a flag set on the server.)
