hi!

I am creating a web application in jsp in which i need to create a form by which user can create an email id on mail server. This is like any email service provider do, like gmail(for creating an email account on their site).

I am new to java mail api. Can anyone provide any hint for this.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks...

The process of creating an email account is different for each mail server - which one are you using? That's not something you can do through JavaMail, so you need to use whatever means your server makes available.

For developing purpose i am using "hmailserver".

we can manually create domain name and accounts on this server. But actually i want to know that how can we do this in programmatic way, like what gmail or others offers to create an email id on their servers by providing a sign up form.

The server documentation should have that information.
