SidePOP allows you to retrieve email very easily from a POP3 account. SidePOP is one DLL (with a dependency on log4net) and a simple configuration that allows you to enhance your applications by giving them the gift of receiving email. SidePOP has an easy configuration - it's the same settings you need to set up email on your phone or in a mail client to check your email. Then all you do is subscribe to the events and you are good. It can't get much harder than that.
