Currently playing around with OpenPOP.NET, straight-forward enough, but having difficulties with using it in conjunction with unicode characters...

Anyone know of any good POP3 client for the .NET platform?

As always, appreciate your time and thoughts :)

What exactly are you trying to achieve? log on to a POP email server and retrieve emails from within .NET code?

Short story, yes :)

I'm building a service that will suck in emails and then dissect them into something more useful. Being able to display the correct message body part is one of my requirements. A little bit stuck with getting unicode to show correctly at the moment...

The emails bit is only a small part of the project, so I don't want to spend heaps of time on it... So, just wondering if anyone know any better POP3 library, commercial ones are fine too.

Avoid the 4AspNet POP3 component.  It worked well at the beginning, but now it sometimes adds random characters to emails it downloads.

I'm in the process of changing it, so I'm keen to also hear recommendations on pop3 components.

I've used the POP component from http://www.chilkatsoft.com/ in the past with good results.

Thanks guys :)

I have read those StackOverflow links and I'm evaluating OpenPOP.NET at the moment.

I haven't tried NSoftware or Chilkatsoft yet, anyone has any experience with them?  (I'm trying to figure out which ones to invest my time on for evaluation)
