Chapter 9. JavaMail
The JavaMail API provides the necessary interfaces for adding electronic mail services to your J2EE applications. The API is extensible, permitting vendors to add support for various mail transport and store protocols such as Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP), Post Office Protocol v3 (POP3), and Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP). JavaMail does not support any mail server functionality — hence, in order to use JavaMail, you also must have access to a mail server. WebLogic includes the JavaMail API Version 1.1.3 reference implementation from Sun Microsystems. In this chapter, you will learn how to set up and use WebLogic’s JavaMail integration.
