ImapClientThreadingAlgorithms Property

Get the threading algorithms supported by the IMAP server.

Namespace:  MailKit.Net.Imap
Assembly:  MailKit (in MailKit.dll) Version: 3.0.0
public override HashSet<ThreadingAlgorithm> ThreadingAlgorithms { get; }

Property Value

Type: HashSetThreadingAlgorithm
The supported threading algorithms.


The threading algorithms are queried as part of the Connect and Authenticate methods.
