MAPI is an API used to automate an email client. If you have a POP3 email client that supports MAPI and you have a client profile set up in that email client with credentials and connection information for an active account on some email server.

So yes, and no. MAPI cannot do anything with POP or with SMTP. But it can be an automation interface to another program that does use those protocols.


Since POP3 is a protocol normally implemented over TCP, and Winsock can be used to establish and communicate via TCP connections over IP... well then yes you can use Winsock. That is if you are willing to do all of the work needed to implement POP3 protocol yourself.


Your request is very naive. It is like asking whether you can drive on public roadways using an ignition key or a can of gasoline.

Here's a starting point though: RFC 1939 - Post Office Protocol - Version 3

You might find POP3 Internet Mail Retriever of interest, but note that it has no SSL/TLS support which most POP3 servers require these days.
