Through mail how can we do this ? My application is client-server(request-response) type. if suppose there 3 machines in network ,then they should communicate with each other ,having inbox(mail saved ) on their machines.

Obviously, there would need to be a mail server that all machines can access. The client access to that server can be handled using the JavaMail API.
I think that HTTP would be far easier to implement, though, and have other advantages (like synchronicity). [ August 07, 2008: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
There is the Java Mail API for mail communication, but if you need to communicate among two servers (or a client and a server), then I think that HTTP is the best way
