  • Hi Suresh,

    Welcome to the forums. If you want to ask questions about Windows Store development, you should post it in the Building Windows Store apps with C# or VB forum as this is for Windows Phone development only.

    You must make it clear what exactly you want to achieve. If you want to share something via email, you should implement share contract and users can share the content of your app with the email application.

    If you want to access gmail to retrieve mails from the service, I am afraid that it is not as straightforward as it may seem. You need to implement your own IMAP/POP3/SMTP library which you would then use for connecting to such services. There is no built in API for accessing emails.

    Are you writing a mail application yourself? Please keep in mind that it is a complex topic with lots of security issues surrounding it.

  • It depends on what you mean by integrating. If you want to talk directly to Gmail you w ill need to implement that yourself or find a third party control. You'll need to check with Google to se if they provide an API or if you'll need to implement Pop or Imp yourself (or via third party control).

    If you don't specifically need Gmail you may be better off using the sharing contract and letting the user decide where to share things.
