 I want to write a program that will send email to my yahoo and hotmail email account.  How can i do this?

  What i want is when i run the program, i just need to type in user name, password, my email address and receiver email address to send an email.

  For retrieve email, i just need to type in user name and password, then click a button to open a web browser.

  I don't want to use things like POP, SMTP..  is it possible?

 Please give me the coding. Thanks.

I know its difficult but i think it's possible because i saw some software can do it.  I just not sure whether VB6.0 can do it or not.

If cannot read the content of email, just read the header of email also acceptable. ^^

If can get the reply from yahoo or hotmail web server and pass the reply to IE or netscape.  May be its easier.

Actually i ask this question in Java already.  Someone reply it but i cannot compile the code sucessfully.

It can be done because I've written a similiar program in VB. The easiest way is to use the winsock.dll and with a little understanding of the SMTP and POP3 protocols, you can do it!

I know can use MAPI control to send/read email but need email software like Microsoft exchange..

Any idea?

Hotmail/Outlook express gives you the chance to configure an account to receive-send mails. There is a library to manage Outlook objects but i don't remember until which version of IE (sure not for 5.5)

It is really easy, just using a combination of a serverside script and MSINET.OCX
you create a form mailer, for example with php
then connect to that url with the message to be sent as a parameter
