Hi this is my first message.
Well to start with u need to have microsoft exchange or a similar server which acts as ur pop3 server.
Then just like the way u access CDONTS for sending mails.
U will have access to one more dll CDO.dll using which u can access the folders and use all the features of outlook etc..
please let me know for more help..

To access recieved mail you can use CDO and MAPI.

/me is a little confused.
rush2vinod said I need some sort of exchange? What does this mean? What programs can i get that will act as a pop3 in some way?
And oracleguy gave me something nice to look at for opening folders, which I assume I might need.

What i actually meant was that when have a pop3 server (which is the one which accepts ur mails) like for example Microsoft exchange server u will have access to a dll - cdo.dll using which u can access the mail,folders etc.
Well the VB code will be something like this :-
Open up VB, select a new Standard VB Project. Click Project, References and scroll down and check Microsoft Outlook 9 Object Library (or whatever version of Outlook you’re running).
To start with, we’re just going to make a simple project that loads Outlook and reads the folders present. Add the following code to the form:
Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim objOutlook As New Outlook.Application
Dim objNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim objInbox As MAPIFolder
Dim objFolder As MAPIFolder
'Get the MAPI reference
Set objNameSpace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
'Pick up the Inbox
Set objInbox = objNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
'Loop through the folders under the Inbox
For Each objFolder In objInbox.Folders
Hope this helps u solve ur problems..
let me know.. if u r still confused.

I don't have a pop3 server. I don't have anything other then FTP/HTTP/SMTP... Now seeing how I need some sort of pop3 server to recieve e-mail, where can I get one? possibly for free if not, a trail would be nice to try.
I will worry about getting accounts and such after I have a pop3 type server working.
