MAPI components allow developers to create mail-enabled Visual Basic applications easily. In this article Jason shows us how to use MAPI controls to read messages from our inbox, iterate through these messages, and more.

Sending Email With MAPI Components in Visual Basic - Conclusion
(Page 4 of 4 )

In this article we've created a program that sends and receives e-mail messages using the windows built-in MAPI components. Please note that we've only looked at the very basics of using the MAPI components in this article.

There are many other features that you might want to add to this project, such as a label that displays the Message number (what message is being viewed), and even something as simple as a clear button that erases the contents of the text boxes on the form when it's clicked. You can also take a look at the links and books below if you're after more information on using the MAPI components.
