Dear All,

I am trying to access my gmail, using the POP3 and SSL.
I am able to connect to the pop server of gmail. When I try to read the content from the Inbox folder, using the code snippet below

Here, both the getMessageCount() and getUnreadMessageCount() methods return a value of "-1".....not sure, as to what is going wrong.

I would really appreciate, if someone can help me out in this regard!!

P.S : I have also tried with folder.getNewMessageCount()...same result
