I'd imagine that you can't do that officially for free.  it used to be easy as you could pass the email and password through a URL to login.something (dll i think).  But they removed that about 8 months ago, now you need to send the pasword (& possibly username) encrypted, which will mean probably purchasing the key from microsft.

You can collect POP3 based email from VB though.
Just use a MAPI client, either the standard VB object or a third party one.
Check this one: http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=109
The example shown is ASP, but should work just as well from VB.
