A mail server in JSP? I really cannot think of a more spectacularly poor technology choice.

Why would you think that JSP is an appropriate medium for such a thing?

Or did you really mean a web-based mail client?

Pinto,

Are you sure that you want to write a mail server?
An SMTP app that is bound to and listens on port 25 for posts from clients such as Thunderbird or KMail, or do you mean JSP/Servlet app that sends mail?

If you mean the former, then I agree with Bear, JSP is the wrong platform.
If you mean the latter, the Javamail API makes this very easy. I'd start with a google search like this one:

Good-Luck and welcome to JavaRanch
