Read POP3 email Visual Basic 2005

Hi Experts,

I am beginning development of a new project in Visual Basic 2005.

One of the things the application will need to do is read and send email. The sending bit is fine but the reading of email I am having a bit more trouble with.

What I would like to be able to do is read the "From" & "Subject" lines of the email then execute some code based on the subject line then delete the email from the pop 3 server.

I have looked through various questions on this site and have come across a few different third party controls which, to me, seem a bit over the top. Ideally I would like to it without paying for third party controls.

Also I do not require a UI for this (if that makes any difference).

I would appreciate your advice.
