Hi Rodchar,
I have done that with Access using VBA. So answer with Dot Net is also Yes

You need to reference Outlook and work through the Outlook Object Model.
I did it some years back with Outlook 97. Since then Outlook security has
been tightened but that should only restrict sending.

Have a look on the MS Developer Network.
One problem that I ran into was attachments with the same file name.
Some old articles ID Q182614, Q180981.
Dot Net will vary somewhat and the Outlook Object Model will probably have
changed a bit.

Hi,
To get around Outlook security prompts, use Redemption.
http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/
because you will get prompts simply by accessing the Inbox
