afternoon guys. I'm about to start writing an application in VB.NET which will need to read emails from an inbox. In the past to achieve this i've used MAPI in VB6, I could just import these controls and use them in .NET but I was wondering if there was a better, more up-to-date practice. Also it seems to be a right pain in the rear end to use MAPI in .NET due to Microsoft's security 'features'.... Can't seem to find anything on the net about reading, just loads about sending emails. any help you could offer would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Andy

Look up POP3, it's an Internet protocol for reading email messages, and I've used and seen a few implementations of it in .NET
