I was trying our your Mail ActiveX component and I observed that your component is reporting wrong email count in GMail.

Let me explain in detail:
In my GMail account I have to 3,993 emails in all. But when I use the code: Msgbox ChilkatMailMan21.GetMailboxCount()

It returns only 469 mails. While IMAP returns 3066 mails. Why so?

I also get the same count when I use:

Set bundle = ChilkatMailMan21.GetAllHeaders(1)
MsgBox bundle.MessageCount
