Reading Email Subject Titles in VB.NET

Posted 18 March 2013 - 01:19 PM

Hello,

I am creating software which will send and read emails. The emails will be sent from a Gmail account (however they could be sent from the Outlook Web App account if possible) to an Outlook Web App account. I'm at a loss for what to do after spending several days trying to figure this out. My program successfully sends emails to the desired recipients, which is fine. However, I need my program to look through the inbox of the recipient. When the email is detected (by it's subject, for example "TEST"), this will display a notification on the user's screen which is simple enough. The part I am having a lot of trouble with is getting the program to scan for this email. Due to the fact that this is using the Outlook Web App, I can't add a reference to the Microsoft Outlook Object Library. I have tried work arounds for some time but I'm back to square one every time. I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you very much for your time.

Check out
http://msdn.microsof...=exchg.65).aspx

also for gmail, they have api's that should allow you to access the users inbox

beyond this, if you have access to the servers using POP, that's an option also.

Hope this helps some.
