Good call. I suggest working with the o.a.g.mail.SMTPTransport class, 
though I think it is also desirable to have an AbstractTransport 
abstract superclass that you can descend from. If there's any common 
functionality that occurs, it can go in the AbstractTransport, which 
will make it easier to write other transports later.

I think that the code should live in the \modules\javamail\src\java, 
rather than \specs\javamail\src\java, because it's an Apache 

Note that ATM the MimeMessage class doesn't work in its entirety, so it 
might be an idea to write a dummy class for testing initially.
