graphClient
.users("userId").mailFolders(folder.id)
.messages().delta()
.buildRequest()
.get();

After this we get deltaLink, How will I take skipToken out of it and call the next set of messages?

    Hi @persistent_test

    Whenever you use delta link microsoft Graph sends a response containing the requested resource and a state token.
    You will get skiptoken or nextLink only if response has additional data i.e as per documentation.

    • If a nextLink(skipToken) URL is returned, there may be additional pages of data to be retrieved in the session. The application continues making requests using the nextLink URL to retrieve all pages of data until a deltaLink URL is returned in the response.
    • If a deltaLink URL is returned, there is no more data about the existing state of the resource to be returned. For future requests, the application uses the deltaLink URL to learn about changes to the resource.

    A delta query GET response always includes a URL specified in a nextLink or deltaLink response header. The nextLink URL includes a skipToken, and a deltaLink URL includes a deltaToken.

    Hope this helps.
