Is there a quick way to show that a message has attachments? I'm making a servlet based webmail system, and I'd like to display a small icon beside the subject if the message has attachments. I don't want to do anything else with the attachments for now, just check if there are any. Now I'm checking every part of the message for disposition data (inline/attachment...), and this tends to be very slow in some cases, especially if there's many messages in the folder. If I find an attachment in a message I don't continue checking the other parts, but instead move on to the next message in the folder. Can I optimize this process somehow? Does anyone have sample code? Is FetchProfile usable here, and    More>>

Is FetchProfile usable here, and if so, how?
