VB.NET - I need my program to receive emails and react to them.

Hi,

I'd like to write a program that receives emails and reacts to the emails.

I do not care if the program itself pulls directly from an email server. I only care that the program receives email content soon after it arrives at the email server. An acceptable option would be an email server that copies emails to a mysql database where the VB.NET program pulls the data.

So here are my subquestions:

1. Is it easy to make a VB.NET program pull emails directly from an email server?

2. Is there some existing system that can work with a VB.NET program to get email data to the VB.NET program?

Note: The VB.NET program need only deal with emails to 1 particular email address.

Thanks for your time
