Subject: moving a message and flags
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 284b
This is probably just a feature request: By default IMAP COPY will not copy the custom message flags. Would it possible to create a new copy function in Mail::IMAPClient which would also copy the flags (by reading them first and then set them on the copied message)? Best -- Erik

Certainly possible. With just a quick glance at RFC 3501 it seems that a server *could* (perhaps should?) preserve flags on a COPY. Section 6.4.7 says: ... The flags and internal date of the message(s) SHOULD be preserved, and the Recent flag SHOULD be set, in the copy. Might be an IMAP server bug. Doing this on the client side would obviously be slower too (the client doesn't need to fetch message(s) details/flags to issue a COPY). Details on your environment? The code in migrate() shows one way to get the flags and copy them across. Essentially, it sounds like you want a customized migrate() that deals with the local server only and uses copy instead of fetching and appending a message. I'm not convinced there's a need yet for this type of thing, but I'm willing to listen.
