Full featured pre-written email client in Visual Basic (source code)


Does anyone know of a full featured pre-written email client like outlook express in Visual Basic (source code)?  I need to create an email client with an application and really dont want to go through all the steps of reproducing alot of what is probably available out there.

Hi onemorecoke,

I am not aware of a VB client, but the below link is a nice ASP.NET in C# client that I have used...

Thanks for the info, but I need code to integrate into a VB6 app.


Have you tried the Outlook View Control?  Go to Project >> Components >> Microsoft Office Outlook View Control.  You can place this directly into a form.  Otherwise, mail clients can be written really easily using the Winsock object.  See http://www.vbip.com/winsock/winsock_mail_checker_01.asp for an example.
