Subject Re: [naming] Mail factory tests

Probably a couple of things. I don't remember the name of the library, 
but there is a mock implementation of javamail that could be used to 
pretend to send mail, but not actually do it.

I guess the other alternative is to embed something like James?

Do you really need to send a mail to test it, or is obtaining a valid 
session enough?
