Danny, I took a quick look at the JavaMail licence and its pretty huge 
and I"m not too hot at reading big complex licences full of legal 
speak. Could we redistribute Sun's JavaMail API in binary form as part 
of the Geronimo project? If so could we also put the jar in the Maven 
repository to avoid painful user-intervention to get Geronimo to build? 
(i.e. so that the build process of Geronimo could auto-download Sun's 
JavaMail API?).

If we can do the above then I agree creating a clone of the JavaMail 
API with the various required implementation code to conform to the API 
might not be a good idea - we might as well just use Sun's API distro. 
I guess it depends on how we're allowed to reuse Sun's API distro.
