Hi All,

I am trying to find out which of the JavaMail API's actually fetches the mails from the Mail Server to the Application that fires the JavaMail API,
I am unable to understand which of the following API's actually does it ?
(1) Store.getFolder("INBOX");
(2) getSession().getStore(..)
(3) Folder.getMessageCount(..);
(4) Folder.getMessages(1, totalMessages);

The reason for my confusion is evenif I shutdown the mail server and debug these API's from debugger,
these API's don't throw any exceptions

Any help in this regard is appreaciated

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
