    Hi,

    We are using telerik controls for silverlight in our application. I am searching for the email client for the silverlight.
    I understand that the silverlight cannot communicate directly with the POP3/mail server... so it has to go through the service and service will communicate witht he mail/pop3 server.

    Could you please tell me do telerik have such control or whre can i find it?

    Hello chintan,

    Currently there is no such control and unfortunately it is not part of our plans either. The security model of Silverlight does not allow cross-domain calls unless they are authorized by the destination (the mail server). This is unlikely to happen again, for security reasons.

    The best way to go here is indeed to call a web service that will connect to the mail servers.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Chintan,

    I stumbled upon this the other day while looking for a good example of a Silverlight mail client:

    http://silvermail.com.au

    I use it all the time now while accessing my personal mail from work etc...

    Might be helpful?

    Hey Simon, thanks for this...

    Actually we are looking for the control which we can integrate in to our Silverlight application...

    I think this site doesnt have the source code available??

    Cheers..
