I've not checked geronimo smtp transport, Is there a feature list for 
current geronimo stmp implementation compared to sun smtp transport?

Does it support the quitwait? bindaddress/port for sockets? does it 
support appending further strings at the end of the MAIL command and the 
How does it compare in converting messages from 7bit to 8bit when 
sending to  servers that supports 8bitmime, and from 8bit to 7bit when 
sending to servers that do not support 8bitmime?


PS: About the 7bit<->8bit mime conversion I wrote some mail to the 
javamail interest and seems that they are buggy in the sun-javamail
