hi all ,
my question here is i want to send an email from a java application using JavaMail API, because i am setting the protocol type here in properties and in the transport type for sending the message, will it go only to the servers that support smtp, i want to send e-mail to all the systems what ever they use, yahoo ,hotmail etc.

please help.
thanks

//Set the host smtp address
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.jcom.net");

// create some properties and get the default Session
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
session.setDebug(debug);

Transport transport = session.getTransport("smtp");

I guess the JavaMail API won't help you then, huh? Unless you'd like to write an extension library specifically to interface with Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.

I thought that there was only "SMTP" protocol for sending mails & "POP3" & "IMAP" for receiving mails.

Are there any other protocols for receiving mails. Let me know
