I would like to build a small VB app that looks at a public folder on our LAN's e-mail server and simply checks the date/time stamp of the most recent msg

If you're using VB 5, you can use the Win32 functions FindFirstFile and FindNextFile to browse through a directory. Once you have the file names, you can use GetFileTime to get the date/time stamp of the file.
