Hi.
Unfortunately, POP3 does not have folder,search feature in specification.
So, I could not add these feature to Pop3Client class.
To add folder feature, you manage MailMessage object data with folder data by saving to your database or file...etc
And To add search feature, by searching your saved database by some way like String.Contains(...) or using Lucene.net.

POP3 is a first standard protocol to receive mail.
But there were some missing feature like folder, search ...etc
Later, IMAP was created and IMAP improved these missing feature.
It is a history of protocol to receive mail...
