We don't have a list of IMAP servers which supports keywords feature, sorry.

However, you can simply try it for any IMAP server by the SetMessageFlags and Search methods.

If you have at least one mail in the INBOX folder, you can do it simply like this:

var client = new Imap();


client.SetMessageFlags(1, ImapFlagAction.Add, ImapMessageFlags.Keywords, "Test-KW");

ImapMessageCollection list = client.Search(ImapSearchParameter.Keyword("Test-KW"));


If the IMAP server supports keywords feature, the list collection would not be empty.

I need to see the assigned keyword in the email headers .. how can i fetch that
by (143k points)
Keywords are a feature of IMAP protocol - they are not part of the message itself and don't appear in email headers. They are just IMAP metadata and can be retrieved using Imap object's GetMessageInfo method:
            ImapMessageInfo info = client.GetMessageInfo(id, ImapListFields.Flags);
            string[] keywords = info.GetKeywords();
(where 'id' is sequence number or unique ID of the message)
Alternatively, GetMessageList also retrieves them when ImapListFields.Flags flag has been specified.

The easiest way, how to get the MessageID header is to specify ImapListFields.Envelope parameter in desired method (GetMessageInfo or GetMessageList).
