Emails receiving in .NET RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    My ASP.NET website is on a shared hosting with IIS 7. Is it possible to execute some code whenever I receive an email in my inbox? I would like to parse email bodies.

  • ASP.NET and IIS are web servers. They have nothing to do with emails. You will need to create either a plugin into mail server (Exchange/etc.), or create a email client which will communicate with mail server and check your inbox.

    Check out existing components for .NET:

  • Oh. Sorry or that. I didn't know which forum to choose since I needed kind of component or code specialized for ASP.NET.

  • I don't think it will be really ASP.NET specific - IMO you need a general .NET component which will work also in ASP.NET. (But I am not expert on ASP.NET at all)

    Anyway, for ASP.NET questions use http://forums.asp.net
