jHello to all,
How can I create a mail server without using JavaMail?
I want to program one of these things on my own but I need some advice to figure out the general idea of the server.
Thanks.
Tom.

Hi Tom,
As I have understood , Java Mail is usefull to program mail clients; It helps you to connect a pop3, imap host and to read/send email using this protocols.
If you want to have a mail server you should have a look to pop3,
imap, smtp protocols, for example at RFC page:
for SMTP http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc821.html
for pop3 http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/std/std53.html
Again, as I understand , your server should implement such protocols...
