Subject Re: [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-944) Bundle a JavaMail implementation & SMTP provider
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2005 22:04:51 GMT
I don't think that we're recommending use of Sun JavaMail now, are we?   
I think that's just a way that we can run some type of provider to 
validate the javamail admin portlet until we can get things straightened 
out with our own smtp provider.   After all, the patch for the admin 
portlet hasn't even been integrated yet.

There is work happening to get the geronimo smtp provider revived and 
functional again with the hope that we will be able to include it and 
the admin portlet in M5.  

I guess if we can't resolve the problems with the provider in time for 
M5 then we need to decide if we want to include the Admin function with 
manual directions for how to include the Sun JavaMail smtp or other 
provider ... or if we just want to wait on the admin javamail portlet 
itself until we have a self contained solution.

>I'm not sure what the state is of our JavaMail implementation.  I know we have our own
spec JAR and I think I've heard that we have our own SMTP provider, but that it's not part
of the Geronimo distribution and as a result the Sun JavaMail provider is recommended.  I'd
like to straighten this out for M5 so we can provide basic JavaMail resource mapping (at least
for outgoing mail via SMTP) as part of the standard package.
