Is it possible to move messages in POP3 to a local folder using javamail? If so, how? And anoher thing is that, can anybody offer suggestions on figuring out which mails are already read in POP3?

you are right !
-it is a POP3 problem

the answer that you got is correct for IMAP4

POP3 does not support flags - therfore you can not distiguish between read/unread emails.

Both of your questions are already answered in the FAQ.

LOOK At <font size=2><pre>setFlag(Flags.Flag.SEEN, true);</pre></font> and <font size=2><pre>if (!messages[i].isSet(Flags.Flag.SEEN))</pre></font>

Something like this

// Get attributes & flags for all messages
Message[] messages = folder.getMessages();
FetchProfile fp = new FetchProfile();
folder.fetch(messages, fp);

// Process each message
for (int i = 0; i < messages.length && i < 1500; i++)
if (!messages[i].isSet(Flags.Flag.SEEN))
//do something
messages[i].setFlag(Flags.Flag.SEEN, true);
