I have a simple and possibly dump message. But, once I have downloaded a message using the IMAP object, how do I reply to a message? I was hoping for something simply on the IMAP object like a method "REPLY" but I've only found AppendMessage and UploadMessage and I'm not sure these are intended for replying to messages.

Can I use the iMap object to respond to messages I download or do I have to use the SMTP object? The only reason I ask is I'd rather not have to reimplement the code to quote previous messages, etc. thats typical to replying to a message.

Any help here would be appreciated. For now, I'm using the trial version to feel my way around this. Thanks in advance!

There is no automated way to create a reply to a message. UploadMessage method allows uploading message to IMAP mailbox, but you'll need MailBee.NET SMTP Component to send a message. It would be necessary to create a reply message based on the original message. For instance, you'll need to handle From and ReplyTo properties in order to set To property value in the new message.

Implementing universal ReplyTo method requires support of many factors, including original message format processing, adding signatures, automated creating multiple "Re[N]:" subject prefixes, managing reply message parts order etc. And still, one might feel lack for something in particular.

However, it's quite easy to implement replying for a certain case with specific requirements.
