How To Create An Email Client To Check My Emails?


  • Hello all,

    I'm new to Visual Studio and I've been watching tutorials and searching, but I'm trying to find out exactly what I have to do to create an email client. I need to create a email client that can check one of my email accounts for me, then based on the criteria I setup for the "From" field in the email client, it will search for a partial match of a URL in the email and then open the link in another tab.


    If I get email and the

     "From" [Testing Servers],

    Inside of that email, there are 3 different URL links. I want to be able to set a criteria in the email client so that when I put in a partial match, it will load the link in another browser. If it doesn't find any links that match the criteria, it would delete the email from the inbox of the account.

    I use a FREE email tool called POP Peeper and it is simiilar to what I am trying to create, with the exception that I can check the "From" field and open a preset "partial-link in a browser tab.

    Is it possible for me to do that with the Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition?

    Any feedback and input is highly appreciated, and I thank you in advance for your valued time.

  • Hi Kevin,

    Just based on your post, I would recommend that you have a look at POP3 Email Client (.NET 2.0) for your reference. This
    class making it easy to interact with POP3 email server, like listing of emails, download and deletion. Special attention was given to reliable connection control. The code was tested for several months with Google Gmail, including SSL.

    Best regards,

    p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {margin-top:0in;margin-right:0in;margin-bottom:10.0pt;margin-left:0in;line-height:115%;font-size:11.0pt;font-family:'Calibri','sans-serif';} .MsoChpDefault {font-size:10.0pt;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in;margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;}
