I agree it is not a simple, built in ability but it is definitely possible to do with VBA .

Do you use Outlook as your email client app? If yes, one option is to use Outlook Automation.

Can you be more specific on what you want to do.

No not the main email app. I just want to have s DB with names address and phone numbers and email at specific interval checks email then puts either the amount of emails and allows me to delete.the unwanted ones. John

I don't really understand what you want to do.

The email has to be stored somewhere in an inbox. If you want to check an inbox from Access then I would use one or more of Chilkat's control.

See:
Chilkat Zip Component, .NET Email Component, SMTP Component, Encryption, Compression, IMAP, POP3, SSH, SFTP Component, FTP, Zip, S/MIME, XML, ActiveX, Assembly, HTTP, C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, C++, Delphi, Library, Upload

I use to use Outlook 2010 but switched to Thunderbird. Using a DB program for email access is not possible I believe,

Outlook and Thunderbird are email clients not email servers. If the email is stored in a mail serve then it is possible to access the email. Some email clients (Like Outlook) allow automation so other application can work with it.

It is definitely possible to do. I do it from Access, VB.Net, and web sites using PHP.

It all depends on where the email is stored if it can be accessed by another application like Access. Generalliy if you wnat to be able to acess your email from multiple applications/devices then storing your email in a mail server that allows IMAP connections works really well.

If you use POP3 and download all the emails into your email app and delete them from the mail server then you should make sure you use an Email app that allows automation.

The key is leaving he email in the mail server and using IMAP.

Of course, Outlook is easy to configure so that it leaves all e-mails on the server.
