     DO NOT USE THIS ON YOUR OWN EMAIL ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU ARE OK KNOWING THAT IT WILL DELETE ALL OF YOU MAIL. VB.Net class that sends and retrieves email message from Gmail and can automatically respond to emails received. You can send an email to your Gmail account and in the subject line Place “add 2 + 3” and this program will download the email, compute the result and send it in a reply. After it is complete it will delete the email from Gmail’s server. Gmail allows the use of POP3 protocol with Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Dot Net framework contains support for this via the SSLStream class. This class will allow your program to connection to Gmail’s email servers, Retrieve email and send email. It support BCC and CC and reply to addresses. You can include attachments all with one simple class. I have commented my code to try and make it easy to follow. Please vote for my project. Allows the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to be negotiated using the STLS command, on the standard POP3 port, rather than an alternate. Some clients and servers, such as Google Gmail, instead use the deprecated alternate-port method, which uses TCP port 995 (POP3S).
