Welcome to the JavaMail API This release includes versions of the JavaMail API implementation, IMAP, SMTP, and POP3 service providers, some examples, and documentation for the JavaMail API.
Please see the FAQ at https://javaee.github.io/javamail/FAQ
The JavaMail API supports JDK 1.4 or higher. Note that we have currently tested this implementation with JDK 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6.
While JavaMail will work with JAF 1.0.2, we recommend the use of JAF 1.1 or newer. JAF 1.1.1 is currently the newest version. Note that JAF 1.1 is included in JDK 1.6 and JAF 1.1.1 is included in JDK 1.6.0_10 and later.
This release supports the following Internet standard mail protocols:
The following table lists the names of the supported protocols (as used in the JavaMail API) and their capabilities:
|Protocol Name||Store or Uses Transport?||Supports|
See our web page at https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javamail/index.html for the latest information on third party protocol providers.

Note that the JavaMail API requires the JavaBeans(TM) Activation Framework package to be installed as well if you're using JDK 1.5 or earlier. Download the latest version of the JavaBeans Activation Framework from https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/index-jsp-136939.html and install it in a suitable location.
