The POP3SecureSocket class is identical to the POP3Socket class, except that it is derived from the SSLSocket class instead of the TCPSocket class. This enables you to send secure email by setting the Secure property of the SSLSocket class.

If you use a constructor of a subclass of POP3SecureSocket, you must call the Super class's constructor in your subclass's constructor. The subclass will not work unless this is done.

Sample Code

The following code in the MessageReceived event handler places the body of an email message in a TextArea.

Sub MessageReceived(ID As Integer, email As EmailMessage)
Var s As String
s = email.BodyHTML
If s = "" Then
s = email.BodyPlainText
End If
TextArea1.Value = s
End Sub
