(Visual Basic 6.0) Async Methods Returning an Object

Demonstrates how to call an asynchronous method that returns an object. This example reads email from a POP3 server using the Async versions of the Chilkat methods.

    ' the desired return type (in this case it is an email object).  This object is
    ' loaded by calling LoadTaskResult.
