Actually I think it is better that SnotMail doesn't use JavaMail at  
all.  The mean they have a working POP implementation where the other  
ones rely in the implementation from Sun.  It may be possible to  
extract their POP implementation in massage it into a JavaMail  
plugin.  Alternatively, POP could be so simple that it is better to  
write one from scratch ourselves.

BTW if you guys really get into this, you should take a look at our  
SMTP implementation.  It needs auth and TLS support.
