I am writing a vb.net application that reads emails from an exchange mailbox and sends back replies.  A previous version of this program in vb6 used ms outlook but I would prefer to drop outlook if possible.  I also do not want to use any third party dll's.

I do not mind if it uses smtop/pop3 or connects directly to exchange.

I don't think you have much choice but to use a 3rd party. I use http://www.lesnikowski.com/mail/

If you're working with Exchange Server 2007 or later, you can connect with Exchange Web Services.

Here you can get more information:

Hope that helps.

Exchange web services looks like a good approach but I am haveing difficutly find easy to follow examples ideally in vb.net but c# would do as it can be converted.  I need to be able to do a few basic tasks
check is there is a new email
read the new email
delete the new email once read
send an email
have you seen any?

Thanks but those examples are using webdav and reading technet it looks like ews is the better way to go

WebDAV is used to develop messaging applications. WebDAV provides access to folders, items, and item properties in the Exchange store. WebDAV can remotely access Exchange. WebDAV is de-emphasized in Exchange 2007. We recommend that you develop new messaging applications using Exchange Web Services, and migrate existing applications when feasible.

codecruiser you are absolutely correct.  I was thinking about another issue while closing this question.
