I need to read Email messages which are in outlook using a java program. I am developing this java program but i am getting issues because pop3 server is required to read email messages. I do not have pop3 server configurations of my organisation.

Can anybody suggest me any way to read email messages other than using pop3?

Below is the code that i have developed using pop3:

Can you use IMAP as protocol instead of POP3? The ideal solution would be to use MAPI, but that's Microsoft's proprietary closed protocol, and has (as far as I know) only been implemented in commercial libraries.

I do not have IMAP configurations as well. Is there any other way to read email messages?

I suggest you talk to your system administrator, because without both POP3 and IMAP it's very difficult to get access to an Exchange mailbox for free.
