JavaMail 1.2 Release
(December 5, 2000)
The JavaMail 1.2 API release contains a number of enhancements to improve the usability and performance of the JavaMail API. This release also contains additional bug fixes.
The JavaMail 1.2 API provides a set of abstract classes that model a mail system. The API provides a platform independent and protocol independent framework to build Java technology-based mail and messaging applications. The JavaMail API is implemented as a Java platform optional package and is also available as part of the Java 2 platform, Enterprise Edition. Sun provides a royalty-free reference implementation, in binary form, that developers will be able to use and ship. The POP3 service provider is now bundled with JavaMail 1.2 API.
