Subject javamail update, POP3, and IMAP
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2006 10:25:25 GMT
I submitted a large patch on Friday that gives us a more complete 
MimeMessage/MimeUtil implementation as well as fixing some problems with 
other classes.  Included are a lot of additional unit tests.  The JIRA 
is here.

There's one large todo I've found in the Session class for loading the 
various configuration files.  I'm going to try to sort out the details 
of what's needed there next.  Once that is done, the spec part of 
javamail implementation work should be done, except for the inevitable 
bug fixes. 

Rajith, the earlier update is made for SMTP included some authentication 
classes, which should make it easy to add additional authentication 
mechanisms to your POP3 implementation.  Currently, those classes 
support LOGIN, PLAIN, DIGEST-MD5, and CRAM-MD5. 

Is anybody working on IMAP support?  I was considering possibly taking a 
look at that, or maybe adding an NNTP handler.
