Hi List,

I'm using an example of an imap client I found with google as a
framework for a more fullfeatured imap client.

They use the line:

 f = self.M.fetch(num, '(BODY[HEADER.FIELDS (SUBJECT FROM)])')

To retrieve the Subject: and From: fields from the message. I'm curious
about how to get the imap flags attached to the message, I can't find
this anywhere. The documentation suggests that it's merely some flag as
part of the `message_parts' argument to IMAP4{,_SSL}.fetch() method, but
what I cannot find. I've tried
(BODY[HEADER.FIELDS (SUBJECT FROM FLAGS)])
but it doesn't have the desired result.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

Thanks in advance

Richo
