True, this has never been the intention of the task - people have
already told you that Ant 1.4 will have a JavaMail based task, so I
won't repeat it 8-)

And I'm sure, it is not the only one, at least JMeter used to have one
and the httpclient component in jakarta-commons has one as well
(Tomcat must have one for basic authentication as well, but a simple
"find . -name \*[bB]ase64\* -print" doesn't show it).  Generally, this
would be something for jakarta-commons
