(Visual Basic 6.0) Read Gmail POP3 Mailbox

Mar 12 '15 at 14:56


I am trying the VB6 Read Gmail POP3 Mailbox example. I have downloaded Chilkat ActiveX v9.5.0, registered using the batch file, and added the reference in VB6.

But i dont found the ChilkatMailMan2 component in any place. When i try execute i found error in the line: Dim mailman As New ChilkatMailMan2

where is ChilkatMailMan2 component?

thanks, Jose

Accepted Answer

In 9.5.0+ the object is now called ChilkatMailMan (without the 2). You can create new instances of the object as follows:

Dim mailman As New Chilkat_v9_5_0.ChilkatMailMan


many thanks

It would be useful update the VB6 examples then or announce the changes in any place


What is the URL of the example using ChilkatMailMan2? It must be an old example..


Here is the URL:

All these examples are not updated


They seem to be updated when I look at them. The names are correctly shown as "ChilkatMailMan", not "ChilkatMailMan2".

You may use Chilkat_v9_5_0.ChilkatMailMan, or ChilkatMailMan, or CreateObject("Chilkat_v9_5_0.ChilkatMailMan"). But NOT ChilkatMailMan2


Thanks for the clarification
