Hi everyone,

I would like to have your advice on the following solution.

I am going to implement a web mail that access MS Exchange Server

I am planning to using JSF and Ajax for the web page and it calls JavaMail which connect to the Exchange Server for send/receive email

I am unsure the following can be done using JavaMail, or I need other API for it

e.g.
1. create/delete folder for the email
2. moving email among folders

please provide me some guide .

thanks in advance

If you use the IMAP protocol then it should work, but not with POP3. See http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/networking/?p=275 for how to set that up on Exchange.

See the JavaEnterpriseEditionFaq for extensive JavaMail information including a tutorial with many code samples.
