Via an answer yesterday I learned about a guy who shamelesly promote his commercial mail component on SO. After throwing a few flags after his canned answers, it occured to me that lots of people seem to have questions about using .NET to read incoming mail. Obviously, a lot of these people also do not know that SO allows searching. Result: a lot of duplicate questions!
Since I have only a limited number of close votes per day (please, I want more!), and the age of many of the duplicates taken into consideration, I fear that I am unable to clean up this mess myself. Hence this call to arms: Join the spring mail question cleanup today!
For the list below I have chosen four "preferred" questions. For each of these, a list of duplicates is provided.
Recommendations for a .NET component to access an email inbox (protocol agnostic)

What if I am wrong!?
It is more than possible that I might be wrong in branding some of the above as duplicates. If you disagree with any of my suggestions above, let me (and the rest of the army) know in a comment/answer.
Similarily, I might have overlooked questions in my search. If you find additional duplicates in the .NET mail reading corning of SO, please do let us know.
