Uppdated with totalItems in Patch 3.2

After CheckInbox() is called and the inbox populated, this function will report the number of items in the user's inbox.

Ensure that the MAIL_INBOX_UPDATE event has been fired before accessing this function, or it will return 0 numItems.

You access items in the inbox using GetInboxHeaderInfo().
