You will have to use a third party ActiveX control like EAGetMail POP3 & IMAP4 Component (.NET/ActiveX Object).
They have very good examples on their site, but it isn't free (starting at 159.95USD - 329.95USD).

The other option is using automation with Outlook to pull emails from Outlook. Personally I would stay away from such an option, being as Outlook itself isn't very reliable (send\receive takes a while and it gets corrupted quite often (often enough that Microsoft included scanpst.exe).
