Can we use Imap and POP3 servers(are free to access) for all sites(gmail-yahoo-hotmail-twitter-reddif-aol....etc)?

Hi ,

is it pop3 and imap servers are free to use for yahoo,gmail,hotmail,twitter,reddif like other social network sites....please tell me the pop3 and imap server names for the all the social network sites?



Thanks for your inquiry.

The Pop3Client and ImapClient can access all standard Pop3 and Imap servers.

It depends on the website (mail or social networking) whether they allow access via Pop3 or Imap.

For example, we know that Google allows free access to both Pop3 and Imap. More details about Gmail at http://www.aspose.com/documentation/.net-components/aspose.network-for-.net/accessing-gmail-on-ssl.html.

Yahoo allows access to Pop3 in their paid package only.

Hotmail has also allowed free access to Pop3. You may connect to it using the same way as Gmail. Settings are:
Host: pop3.live.com
Port: 995
SSL Enabled: Yes

We do not know about the other social networking websites, but you may check their help/support if they allow Pop3 or Imap access. You only need the correct settings like host, port, ssl, username and password to access any pop3 or imap server.
