The version that shipped with Geronimo 1.0 was missing a lot of features 
(threw unimplemented exceptions, etc.) as well as out right buggy in 
places.  The version that just shipped with 1.1 should be complete (the 
APIs anyway).   The version shipping with 1.1 only supports SMTP.  
However, the newly created javamail component (separate build tree) 
supports POP3, NNTP, and NNTP-POST.  IMAP is in the works.
