I have the following code snippet.

    // Connect to the mail store
    m_store->connect();
    // Open the default folder in this store
    vmime::ref <vmime::net::folder> m_folder = m_store->getDefaultFolder();
    // vmime::ref <vmime::net::folder> f = st->getFolder(vmime::utility::path("a"));
    m_folder->open(vmime::net::folder::MODE_READ_WRITE);
    m_message_count = m_folder->getMessageCount();
    int options = folder::FETCH_UID | folder::FETCH_SIZE;
    m_folder->fetchMessages(m_messages, options);
    m_messages = m_folder->getMessages();
    std::cout << m_message_count << " message(s) in your inbox" << std::endl;
    for ( int i=0; i < m_message_count; i++)
    {
        vmime::ref <vmime::net::message> message = m_messages[i];
        //const vmime::net::message * message_ptr = (const vmime::net::message *)(const void*)message;
        std::string uid = message->getUniqueId();
        std::cout << i << " : "<< uid << std::endl;
    }

I could get the correct message count which indicates the proper server connection and authentication. When the fetchMessages() lines was executed within a debugger, I could see on the POP3 server that the vmime sends out UIDL and LIST commands which the server responds correctly.

Yet, message->getUniqueId(); for each message is ""

What am I doing wrong?
