Hi guys, I've been working on a course project where I am building an email client without using JavaMail. I've managed to send emails with attachments using the Base64 encoding. And I can also receive plain text emails.
Now I'm at a loss on how to receive a mail with attachments. I don't know how many mime message encoders are out there and don't have the code to decode a Base64 attachment.
Please let me know:
How many different type of decoder will I have to include in my program to maintain standard, and how many ae out there?
Where can I get the code for receiving mail with attachments for my quick understanding?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Sheriff looks like I'll need a Java Decompiler. Which one is best and where to download?

From the News box on the JavaMailTM API page at Sun
JavaMail 1.2 source code now released as part of J2EE 1.3 SCSL release. Click here to download.

Are the decompilers legal?
Anyway I went through the source, as I thought, they were too hazy for me. The developers at sun have very complicated way of programming.
