Question Email accounts stored in Registry


Hello All,

This is my first post. I am a little new to VB, been using it for about 3 months. I was wondering if I could get some help.

Currently, I am try to get the email addresses that have been saved or stored by the user of the computer. This isn't the emails that the user has sent or received, or the contacts he/she has in his address book. Just simply the email accounts that have been accessed from the computer.

I know that there are some locations stored in the registry that have the email account. The email addresses that are used on the current computer. I just can't seem to find them on my computer.

I am not sure if the registry is the only place to find it or if it stored on the web browser such as internet explorer or google chrome.

Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks in advance for the help.

Much appreciated,
Omega_Link

There's no API to get the user's email address, and it's often not documented how a program stores accounts. One person can have an infinite number of addresses, and not everyone uses the same program. There's Outlook, Incredimail, Thunderbird, Lotus Notes and who knows how many other mail clients. I bet they store accounts in different places. I bet some people use more than one client. What if the user uses a mail client you haven't encountered yet? What if the user uses web email clients and thus their address isn't stored on their machine? (I don't use *any* mail clients, only Gmail!)

I don't know why you need this email account information, but the best approach is to ask the user.
