I want to create an app to send/receive emails through gmail and using vb.net windows form. So the smtp server name, username,password should all be set i assume. If gmail is the client to send the Email messages from then, the pop3 name would be associated with that of gmail.

I want to read these messages also so to extract info out of them.

The first link on reading Email content through xml is a valid option. Is there a way to read the attachments onto the mail like will there be a attachment tag that would be loaded onto the xml and grabbed from there.

I don't know exactly but I think there would be an attachment tag with a URL to the actual file. Try writing xml to a file and inspect it to see if there is an attachment tag.
