Is it possible to write an email application in VB similiar to Outlook, but of course scaled down? If so are there any open source apps already out there that I can customize to meet my needs?

I need to be able to both retrieve and send email and hopefully even scan it on the server with an option to delete instead of retrieveing.

I downloaded several VBPs from these sites and started evaluating some of them, until I got swamped with work. Once I get a chance to look at them again, it appears I can take parts from several to create what I am wanting.
