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.

There is a lot of code on the net to do what you want.  Here are a couple of good sites...

Also, search the PAQ's at EE and I'm sure you will find what you are looking for.

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.
