The Java Mail API, like all official APIs, is avaiulable from . Look in the "products and APIs" list for JavaMail.
I think there is also a tutorial there, but if you search here on Java Ranch you will find several examples of code which use Java Mail, and instructions for installing and using it.

hi Mohan,
you will not find a tutorial for Java Mail. But will have to download the Mail specifications to have a very clear understanding of the API. other than this the book Professional Java Servler Programming by Wrox has a chapter explaining it.
It is not worth buying the book for a single chapter but u can check out the chapter from friends or in u r office.
The example programes that come with the API will help u a lot in understanding what it is all about. Try them out. I think it is worth the effort to know the Mail API as mail is omni present on the net.
If u have any problems do tell us here.
