    Hi All,

    I'm hoping to create a searchable web-based archive of a email list using
    ASP. Is there a way to get asp to connect to a mailbox and download mesages
    as text strings which could them be added to an SQL databse? Most of this is
    fine, it's just the retreival of messages that has me stuck at the moment.

    Thanks.

    This depends on what type of e-mail server you are using. If you're using
    Exchange, you can use CDO, ADI, or even ADO to get to the information.
