Is there a POP3 Mail Component?

P: n/a
I'm writing a c# web app and I can't find a POP3 mail component. I found
the SMTP component, but not a POP3 one. Seems like there should be one.

What is the name of the POP3 component? or do I have to write my own?

There's not one - but there are plenty available. Here's one commercial
solution: IP*Works! POP component (included in a full internet toolkit):

Hi Matt,

Based on my understanding, you want to get a POP3 component to connect to a
POP3 server.

Actually, .Net did not setup a POP3 class or component for you. You have to
use System.Net namespace to write one yourself.

The article below tells you how to uses the System.Net namespace of the
Microsoft .NET Framework to check a POP3 e-mail account for unread messages:
"Checking My E-Mail"

problem.

If you're looking for a good 3rd party POP3 control, check out dart.com.
Very well done.

HI Jeffery

I am writing a program to retrieve and delete email messages through POP3
How I did it is basically the same with what mentioned in the MS article that you provided in previous reply
I can read emails fine, but somehow can’t really delete them. I used “DELE <email number>” eg: “DELE 1” to delete the first email. I can see the response is “+OK”, but the email is not actually deleted.
Actually it successfully deleted once, but after that it just did not work anymore. Really can’t figure out what’s wrong with it, cuz I can still receive emails

What do you think that might go wrong?

You need to look at the various RFCs that cover POP3; when you issue a
"DELE n" command the message is marked for deletion, but until the
current POP3 session is completed, will still be available. When the
session closes, messages marked for deletion will then be removed by the
mail server.

Just to clarify, the POP3 session must be completed with the "QUIT" command
to actually perform the selected deletions.

The POP3 RFC is 1939 available from http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1939.html
