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

Thanks
Swap
