I have developed an utility using VB6 and Mapi controls. Now the requirement is to run this VB 6 application on PalmPilot.Will this application run on PalmPilot? If not using which language or toolkit the application needs to be developed so that it runs on PalmPilot? Moreoever another requirement is this utility in VB should also communicate with Lotus Notes server and send/receive mail using Lotus Notes from the VB utility.How to implement this for Mapi won't be used as it is used with Outlook Express only and do this VB-Lotus combination is supported on Palpilot or I need to develop it in another language or toolkit to support Lotus Notes on PalmPilot?

 You're existing app will not run on a Palm OS device.. However you can write VB Apps for Palm OS using Appforge's MobileVB platform.. http://www.appforge.com/prod/af_prof/index.html 

  Your existing code may need to be modified in order to work, but it would a lot less work than porting it to C, that's for sure..
