Of course not.  (If I wanted to say that, I would have said it!)

I'm saying that if all you want to do is send email (JavaMail does far
more than this, including the much harder task of implementing IMAP)
then I'd prefer to use an Open Source library.  I'm not an Open Source
zealot, but if there's an O.S. implementation that does what we need and
a non-O.S. version, we should use the O.S. version.
