ImapBeginUploadMessage Method

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Begins an asynchronous request for uploading the message into the specified folder on the server.

Namespace: MailBee.ImapMail
Assembly: MailBee.NET (in MailBee.NET.dll) Version: 12.2.0 build 630 for .NET 4.5
[ObsoleteAttribute("This method is obsolete in .NET 4.5+. Use UploadMessageAsync instead.")]
public IAsyncResult BeginUploadMessage(
	MailMessage msg,
	string folderName,
	string flags,
	string dateTimeString,
	bool batchMode,
	UidPlusResult result,
	AsyncCallback callback,
	Object state


Type: MailBee.MimeMailMessage
A reference to the MailMessage object representing the message to be uploaded.
Type: SystemString
The full name of the folder to upload the message to.
Type: SystemString
The string containing the message flags (in IMAP4 format) to be assigned to the message, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) to set default flags at the discretion of the server.
Type: SystemString
The string containing datetime (in IMAP4 format) to be assigned to the INTERNALDATE attribute of the message (the date of receiving the message by the server), or a null reference to let the server assign its current datetime value.
Type: SystemBoolean
If true and LITERAL+ extension is supported by the server, the message will be uploaded in a single network operation; otherwise, in two operations.
Type: MailBee.ImapMailUidPlusResult
A reference to the UidPlusResult object to be filled with the outcome of the upload operation reported by UIDPLUS enabled server (the outcome includes the UID assigned to the uploaded message and the UIDVALIDITY of the folder the message was uploaded to), or a null reference if the application does not need this information.
Type: SystemAsyncCallback
The AsyncCallback delegate. You can leave it a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if you do not use callbacks.
Type: SystemObject
An object that contains state information for this request. You can leave it a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

Type: IAsyncResult
An IAsyncResult that references the asynchronous upload process.
MailBeeInvalidStateExceptionThere is already an operation in progress.
This sample demonstrates asynchronous uploading a message into "Draft" folder and use of a callback function in a console application.
