Looks like

http://jgmail.sourceforge.net/

might be a good place to start?

Incidentally, it wasn't like I was aware of the above project. Just found it by searching Google. FYI.

Anand, I loved your answer.

It's funny how the net can be used to post a question but not used to search for an answer to that question

I too have been guilty of saying "Hey, I just googled and I found this link." But I have noticed that not everybody's googling skills are equal. Often people don't choose the right keywords (using too many keywords will usually get you junk, for example). So what keywords did you use, Anand?

Am afraid I don't remember. Besides, the point I was trying to make was not so much "Could you not find it yourself?", rather "I know diddley squat about this, so don't ask me anything!".

That said, I agree with your observation Paul. To that end, I would recommend "Google Hacks". I got it dirt cheap (less than $5), and quite a few things out of that, that I didn't know about searching on Google.
