Any ideas how I would learn to use this? I'm still a begininner, and so far only written simple programs using J2SE, swing classes etc.

Same way as everyone else . Assuming you understand the very basics of SMTP and POP3 (there are plenty resources out there if you don't) just go through the tutorials.
