E-mail functions (POP3, SMTP) are based on RFCs and are programming 
language-agnostic.  You can use any mail server with your javamail 
program as long as they both comply with the applicable standards.  Of 
course, with an open-source java e-mail server, you would have the 
option of building the server directly into your application, with a 
possible performance gain.  However, 5k messages per day is not enough 
that performance is going to be an issue anyway.
