This is specific to your app.  What code are you executing to "download
mail"?  Please also be sure you're not confusion a JavaMail "session"
with a Servlet "session."  The two are entirely different, despite
sharing the name "session."

In general, it is undesirable for one servlet to wait for another.
That's too high a degree of coupling.
