Solution : When you are creating the message and right before you are about to transport it you can write the message to a text file e.g. in your case call it backup.txt Use this code :
message.writeTo( new FileOutputStream("backup.txt") );

You are welcome Metal Zhang. I was also facing the same problem till about a week back and I bumped into this question in some other forum.
Actually I have a problem which is an extension to Metal's problem. My question is : Can Mail Messages recieved from a pop mailbox be stored as an ARRAY of messages in a single file on the local machine? If the answer is yes, I would be grateful if you could tell me.
And also how can those messages be read as an array later from the backup file.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
