How easy is the POP Control to use? Check out the VB example below which demonstrates how to retrieve all message headers from a POP server and displays data about each header.
Pop1.Timeout = 30000
' Login to the server
Pop1.Login "mail.test.com", "testuser", "testpassword"
' Only get the header of the messages
Pop1.Preview = 0
' Get all message headers
' Iterate through the messages and display data
Dim msg As Message
For Each msg In Pop1.Messages
MsgBox "From: " & msg.From & " Subject: " & msg.Subject
