Read SMTP email using ASP.NET and IIS

P: n/a
Hi all.

We already use the SMTP features in .NET for sending SMTP email, but how can
you receive SMTP email using the .NET framework. Basically we need to catch
email from a given address and then invoke our business processes. Any help
or a direction to the right article would be great. We need to work with the
SMTP service installed with IIS.

Thanks :-)

SMTP is for sending email and pop3 for receiving it. You could use a .net
pop3 component someone else has already written or write your own.

You can read from a server using Pop3. Here is one example:

I am certain there are some pre-made, third party components, as well.
