Hi,

Is it possible to read and send emails using hotmail with C#? Not the POP3 method please. Are there some kind of windows live mail api for us to do that?

thanks

As far as I know, there is no API for Windows Live Mail except for managing your contacts.

hi ong-hh,

i think ms already ditched httpmail protocol so it is not applicable anymore and from the results of some googling. Ms is using a protocol known as deltasync now but info on it is very minimal.

hi djjaries,

that what i thought so too but i have seen customised hotmail clients like mbox mail :
http://fluentfactory.com/mboxmail/

so it kept me wondering how they did it.

Well, there is a protocol because a website can access the info too. It just is not (publicly) documented.
