JavaMail API Release 1.3


JavaMail 1.3 Release
(June 26, 2002)

The JavaMail 1.3 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 1.3 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.

NOTE: You will also need the JavaBeans Activation Framework extension or JAF (javax.activation). We recommend the latest 1.0.2 version.
