Help you in what way? Contribute to an open source project? Write the code for you?

If all you're looking for is pointers, you'll need to become very familiar with the JavaMail API. JavaMail is discussed in the Other Java APIs forum.

Javascript isn't going to help you with accessing the mail server. You would have to do that in the JSP, i.e. in the server. And then you're developing the Hotmail functionality rather than the MS Outlook functionality, most likely. However if you want to see a good example of what can be done in a Web application accessing a mail server, have a look at Outlook Web Access. Microsoft has done a very good job of using DHTML etc to make it look like Outlook. Only runs in IE but what would you expect?

Since Outlook is a Windows desktop app that connects to a mail server and JSP is a server side web technology, your requirement is not possible.
If you want to achieve "Outlook like" functionality in a web app, follow Paul's excellent advice and see how others are doing it.

You could certainly write an e-mail client in Java, with no server involved. Using the JavaMail API as Bear said. That has already been done, I am sure without even searching the Internet.
