Reading Email Programmatically

Jawa2007Jawa2007 Posts: 1Member
Hello folks. I am trying to write a program that will connect to a microsoft exchange server and read the email. I have heard that Microsoft MAPI is the way to go. I just have not figured out how to make it work. I have found lots of examples of how to send mail, but I have not been able to receive mail. Does anyone have a code sample I could check out? Is there a book someone can recommend? I have tried the following code and when I get to the CreateObject line I get an error like "Cannot create ActiveX control." Does anyone have suggestions? Is there a step I missed in the IDE?

Imports System.Web
Imports MSMAPI

Public Class Form1

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim session As New MSMAPI.MAPISession
Dim m As New MSMAPI.MAPIMessages

session = CreateObject("MAPI.Session", "exchange.mailserver.com")
session.UserName = "developertest"
session.Password = "developer"
Try
session.SignOn()

Catch ex As Exception
MessageBox.Show("not signed it")
End Try
MessageBox.Show("Done")
session.SignOff()

'session.DownLoadMail()

'm.Fetch()



End Sub
End Class
