I agree many ASF projects could benefit from an ASF-licensed JavaMail 
(any app in ASF that sends emails, so almost all of them).  I would 
favor either James or Geronimo hosting it.  Geronimo because it is a 
J2EE implementation and JavaMail is part of that, and James because 
we've suffered through JavaMail more than anyone, and hopefully will 
have related libraries (mbox stores, new transports, whatever).
