.net – Programmatically use Gmail to receive e-mail


I'd like to use a C# program to poll a gmail account and automatically download new messages. I know you can use gmail as an outbound SMTP server, but is there any way to access new messages sent to the account?

EDIT: Thanks for the rapid feedback….so I have two options, POP or IMAP.

Which one should I use? And why?

EDIT #2: Looks like IMAP allows me to not have to poll. Looks like the way to go.
