HELP!! Email enabling a program

HELP!! Email enabling a program

HELP!! Email enabling a program


I am about to start on a project that will involve the ability to send and receive email.

I am not sure where to start as I do not know what email program the end users will have installed.

Do I use the MSMAPI.ocx, if so how do I retrieve messages from a particular folder rather than all emails in the inbox only.

I have had a look at the VBmail sample on the MSDN CD, but that is not very helpful for what I want to use it for.

Essentially a user will send an email to a predefined address by the click of a button after collecting info from a database.

The program will also need to scan a particular folder in an email application for incoming emails and store them.
