The standard JavaMail library doesn't work on Android. You need to use a port - found somewhere on Google Code- instead.

Great!:-)
yes but I fail to use this (mail.jar, etc, in the main-question )

The example is for "smtp"(send) and not fetch(imap), i hope I can manage to solve this anyway.
If any one have a link with sampel-imap-code, please feel free post

Best regards

Frankly, I haven't used it myself, but the project home page says that it supports IMAP, so...

In the apps I worked on, I don't send emails automatically, but trigger an Intent with all the data to the email app, so that the user can alter it to his heart's content before clicking Send.
