Numerous problems in javamail SearchTerm impl.

                 Key: GERONIMO-3594
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: mail
            Reporter: Rick McGuire
            Assignee: Rick McGuire

There are a number of problems in the javamail SearchTerm classes.  The fall into several
general categories:

1)  Some search terms rely on method calls in the Message class that can return a null result.
 This leads to null pointer exceptions when performing client-side match operations. 
2)  A number of classes don't override the equals() method and ensure that the other object
is of the correct type.
3)  Some equals method implementations don't include all data items in the compare, which
can lead to false positives.
4)  The hashCode methods don't always include all data items in the hash.  In at least one
case, an item is included that will create an invalid hash that will violate the hashCode()/equals()
general contract.
