Read Mail using IMAP and ASP.Net

I need to Read a Microsoft Exchange Mail Box and process attachments(copy attached files to a network location for further processing) from each message.  I would like to do it through a ASP.NET webservice project using IMAP.  Can anyone help me with sample code or a direction.

I use Visual Studio 2003, and Framework 1.1, and VB.Net

I do not know c#, looking for code samples.

Thank You.

I am unable to buy any third party components at this time.  But, I am going through the links.

Thank You

First three are third party components, and 4th one is in C#.  

Can any one show sample?  Thanks a lot.

Even though the IMAP Library on CodeProject is written in C#, it comes in a compiled dll, so it's just a matter of adding a reference of that library to your project.
If you're having trouble understanding how to convert the example C# code to VB.Net, then I'd suggest using this tool:

I use it all the time for translating C# to VB.Net and vice-versa.
