hi all,<BR><BR>i'm using Server Objects ASPPOP3 component to retrieve email from pop3servers and it works fine. the only problem i'm having is finding a way to uniquely identify each email on the popserver. i want to be able to leave the emails on the popserver after i retrieve them, but when i go to retrieve new emails, the old ones get retrieved again. i need to be able to set some status flag in my DB saying that i got them already, but i can't find an indentifier that's unique to each email. anyone have any suggestions?
