This Example shows you how delete a message. If you want to delete any message then set the message flag delete. There are different types of flags, some system-defined and some user-defined.

* Flags.Flag.ANSWERED* Flags.Flag.DELETED* Flags.Flag.DRAFT* Flags.Flag.FLAGGED* Flags.Flag.RECENT* Flags.Flag.SEEN* Flags.Flag.USERTo delete messages, you set the message's DELETED flag:message.setFlag(Flags.Flag.DELETED, true);Open up the folder in READ_WRITE mode first though:folder.open(Folder.READ_WRITE);Then, when you are done processing all messages, close the folder, passing in a true value to expunge the deleted messages.

folder.close(true);
