GemBox.Email Free delivers the same performance and set of features as the Professional version. However, the following limitations are imposed:

  • Maximum size of message attachment is 50 KB.
  • Maximum number of sent, received, saved and loaded messages is 50.

ComponentInfo.FreeLimitReached event allows you to control what happens when your application reaches free version limit.
You can use this event to stop further sending/receiving (set FreeLimitReachedAction to Stop).

First steps

Using GemBox.Email component is easy and straightforward. The following code is needed to download message using POP from your application:

C# code:

static void Main()
{
    // Set license key to use GemBox.Email in a Free mode.
    ComponentInfo.SetLicense("FREE-LIMITED-KEY");
    // Create new POP client.
    using (PopClient pop = new PopClient("<ADDRESS> (e.g. pop.gmail.com)"))
    {
        // Connect to mail server and authenticate
        pop.Connect();
        pop.Authenticate("<USERNAME>", "<PASSWORD>");
        // Download message with sequence number 1 (first one) and write its body
        MailMessage message = pop.GetMessage(1);
        Console.WriteLine(message.BodyText);
    }
}

Visual Basic .NET code:

Sub Main()
    ' Set license key to use GemBox.Email in a Free mode.
    ComponentInfo.SetLicense("FREE-LIMITED-KEY")
    ' Create new POP client.
    Using pop As New PopClient("<ADDRESS> (e.g. pop.gmail.com)")
        ' Connect to mail server and authenticate
        pop.Connect();
        pop.Authenticate("<USERNAME>", "<PASSWORD>")
        ' Download message with sequence number 1 (first one) and write its body
        Dim message As MailMessage = pop.GetMessage(1)
        Console.WriteLine(message.BodyText)
    End Using
End Sub

Usage

You can use GemBox.Email Free for the any purpose, including use in commercial applications.

However, you are required to acknowledge in your application that you are using GemBox.Email Free for specific purpose and you need to provide a link to GemBox.Email or GemBox.Email Free page. You can format and formulate the acknowledgement in any way you like. For example, if you send an email with our component, you can put sent using GemBox.Email Free .NET component link at the bottom of email message HTML body. Again, format and text is arbitrary, as long as you mention GemBox.Email Free and a link to a page on our web site.
