Hi,

I need to poll an email server for emails and download the latest emails, like a very simple email client. Has anyone got a piece of code to do this using c# ?

All help much appreciated.
Thanks,
John

Retrieving emails is a little bit more complex than sending them but there are a couple of open source implementations of the POP3 protocol

http://sourceforge.net/projects/hpop/
http://csharpmail.codeplex.com/

both of them are very easy to use and contain sample client code.
