Is there a way to set up Tomcat to be a mail server? I have been rifling through the documentation and have not found anything other than a jsp-based web mail capability. I'm looking for the ability to set up an account in outlook, and have Tomcat send and recieve e-mails for that account. Thank you for any help you may provide.

In order to send mail, you will need acces to an SMTP server. To receive, you need a POP or IMAP server. Tomcat can serve as neither of these.
What you can do is to have your web app send mail through the SMTP server, or retrieve mail from the POP/IMAP server, using the JavaMail API.
