How to access inbox and email account details


  • Hello! I added my gmail account to my windows phone 7. Now I want to consume account information (like account name, pop/imap server, etc.) and folders (like inbox, deleted, etc.) from my Silverlight WP 7 application. Is it possible at all? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Currently that is not possible in WP7. Access to that information is blocked (by design) for 3rd party apps. Your app would have to ask for account information from the user and access the mail server directly.
