Inbox & Folders

When working with the Inbox and Folder you can perform nine actions: Post (Add New Folder), Put (Update A Folder/Move A Message Between Folders), Delete (Delete A Message/Folder), Get (Get Inbox Message/Folder By ID), Index (Get All Messages/All Folders). The code samples below use shared libraries.

Contacts

When working with Contacts you can perform five actions: Post (Add New Contact), Put (Update/Edit A Contact), Delete (Delete A Contact), Get (Get Contact By ID), Index (Get All Contacts). The code samples below use shared libraries and packages.
