Subject Re: SOAP over SMTP/POP

O.K. so I have found the W3C's SOAP email binding stuff at:

and they say it is only for discussion. (plus I don't completely 
understand it all)

For lack of a better solution I was planning to write something that 
checks a mailbox every so often (using javamail), and when it finds a 
1) checks the signature <- I don't want just anyone emailing my server 
soap commands
2) feeds the Soap envelope to axis.

now, I am  curious about  a couple things

1) what is the best way to feed the soap envelope to axis?
      I could form a http request and feed it in that way easy enough, 
but perhaps there is a better way.

2) what would be the best way in the email to define which soap service 
this message is for?
     I suppose I could place the service name in the subject line. but 
again perhaps there is a better way.

Anyone with any ideas?

Ken, I searched developer works, but your paper apparently hasn't been 
published yet. If you are able to distribute the paper, I would like to 
read it.
