how do I connect to an exchange server programatically to get email?

P: n/a
I want to write an outlook plug-in or even a separate app if necessary to
connect to an exchange server to get mail off of it. My outlook is
currently connected to Exchange server A, I need to get mail from Exchange
server B and put it on Exchange server A. I'm tired of using multiple
Outlook profiles. How do I connect to an exchange server programmatically
and get mail? I'd like to do it as a plug in, but if it needs to be a
separate app that connects to both exchange servers that's fine too.

I have Visual Studio 2005 and VSTO

Any help would be greatly appreciated. There seems to be a lot of info on
SMTP mail but not exchange server stuff. Most of the exchange server stuff
needs to run on the exchange server.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Search through the MSDN for "WebDAV", you can use this in .NET to
connect to an exchange server and perform any task that outlook can
perform. Create new mail, delete mail, create public folder items
etc...

When connecting with WebDAV, you can specify what mailbox you want to
connect to and such.

There is examples of WebDAV in the Exchange SDK
