hello people,

i am working on JMS task.where users can send mail to other user.i like to know what is the difference between SMTP and other protocol and which one is best for simple tasks only for sending and recieving mails (no attachments)...

Furthur i lie to know if i go for any specific protocol. how do i proceed. Should i download the sun suit from there site or any third party suit will be best.

SMTP is the protocol for sending e-mail via a server, with or without attachments. IMAP and POP3 are protocols for retrieving e-mail from a server.

If you are working in a J2EE container then JavaMail is already included and all you have to do is write code that uses JavaMail.

I think you need to tell us a lot more about what you are trying to do before your question can be answered, e.g. WHAT are you trying to configure, and what exactly do you mean by "SMTP name". I'm also not sure how JMS fits in, because that doesn't use SMTP.
