Read and Delete mails through POP3 using C#

Hello everyone.

I need to delete mails of my inbox through asp.net. Is there any way to perform this concept?

I have heard something like an open-source library called OpenPop.NET.

Below is a screen shot of the program I managed to search online, but I'm still having a hard time understanding it.

Waiting for your responses.

Thanks you.

Check Mail

Do you want to delete this message?

Read and Delete mails through POP3 using C#

qa-featured

For storing the mail details (like Subject, message number, etc.), I created a custom class as below:

   1:      usingSystem;
 
   2:     usingSystem.Collections.Generic;

   3:     usingSystem.Text;

   4:

   5:      namespacePOP3_MailHandling

   6:      {

   7:     /// <summary>

   8:     /// Custom class that holds the Mail details

   9:     /// </summary>

  10:     publicclassPop3Mails

  11:     {

  12:         /// <summary>

  13:         /// Message number of the mail.

  14:         /// This number is used to delete the mails

  15:         /// </summary>

  16:         publicintMessageNumber { get; set; }

  17:

  18:         /// <summary>

  19:         /// Subject of the message

  20:         /// </summary>

  21:         publicstringSubject { get; set; }

  22:     }

  23:}

This class is populated with the mail details into a Generic List collection, which is then bound to a ListBox to display the details.

The code for loading messages and deleting the selected mail is as below and is commented well, so that comes to be self-explanatory.

   1:    usingSystem;

   2:    usingSystem.Collections.Generic;

   3:    usingSystem.ComponentModel;

   4:              usingSystem.Data;

   5:              usingSystem.Drawing;

   6:              usingSystem.Text;

   7:             usingSystem.Windows.Forms;

   8:  

   9:             // POP.NET Namespace

  10:           usingOpenPop.Mime;

  11:           usingOpenPop.Mime.Header;

  12:           usingOpenPop.Pop3;

  13:           usingOpenPop.Pop3.Exceptions;

  14:           usingOpenPop.Common.Logging;

  15:  

  16:           // Used to avaoid ambiguity between

  17:           // System.Windows.Forms.Message & OpenPop.Mime.Message

  18:          usingPop3Message = OpenPop.Mime.Message;

  19:  

  20:           namespacePOP3_MailHandling

  21:          {

  22:          publicpartialclassForm1 : Form

  23:         {

  24:         Pop3Client _pop3;
