Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

You can use ASP or C# to create web pages where you can access your Yahoo mailbox, but it would require a lot of work to do so.

Can I use ASP or C# code to create a web page from where can enter user id and password and access my yahoo mailbox?

Sure. Since it's just software, anything is possible. But if I understand what you're asking for it would be a lot of work. To my knowledge there is no API to Yahoo mail. This article might also help: Can I read web mail using a pop3 mail reader? - mentioned therein are some tools that somehow are doing the same kinds of things you would need to do.

How can I use CDONTS object (ASP3.0) in a ASP page to access my mailbox in an Exchange Server.

Why doesn't the LogonSMTP method of CDONTS.Session Object need the password for mailbox (only Friendlyname and email address are needed)? If so, any user can access my mailbox when their have my email address?
If you can, please help me this problem and send to my mailbox: It's is very essential to me. Thank you!
