Hello all,
I tried to run the demo available in the javamail package configuring the JAVAWEBSERVER2.0 as per the guideline given in the README file .But I am confused as to what is to be used as IMAP host .Also, I didnot find jws.jar in the javawebserver2.0\LIB package which needs to be set in the class path.
Can anyone help?

The IMAP host is the name or IP address of whichever machine you have that runs IMAP. IMAP is a mail access protocol similar to POP3; you may already be using an IMAP host if you are already set up to receive email. Have a look in the configuration of your existing mail client, and use the same machine details.

Hi Frank,
Can u explain me how to set up any machine for an IMAP? or can it be connected to POP3 server as well ?
That will be indeed useful to me.
Thanx,
Manish

Setting up a mchine as an IMAP server requires running an IMAP daemon, which may be more complicated than necessary. Depending which version of JavaMail you have, POP3 may be built in, if it is, converting the example to use POP3 should be easy. If POP3 is not built in you will need to download the pop3.jar from the Sun JavaMail site and put it in your classpath or jre/ext/lib.
