Boudi I did a similar thing with this .NET library for emails.
You have to choose which protocol to use, this would typically depend on what email server you have, but in your case you have a major email provider (Microsoft) which provides a support for any protocol.
So you can go with either a C# code for reading emails via POP protocol or a C# code for reading email via IMAP protocol.

Go through below links, it shows how to read unread mails.

Mailsystem - It's open source library used for managing mails from pop3, smtp & Imap protocol. with the help of this library you can find the counter of unread mails.

Please go through with this link, it shows how to access mail without using any third party library. you can use hotmail pop server instead of gmail.
