Not much to do with JSP, so I'm shuffling this along to the Other Java APIs forum.

varun, it's perhaps not clear which part of your considered project you're asking about. Is there a particular part which is giving you problems?
You'll definitley want to learn the JavaMail API. You may want to try a quick search for other posts on JavaMail in this forum for an example of its use.
