    Unanswered: Java programming with IMAP

    I was asked to write a java program as a part of my project. This program will access to IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) and create a mailbox for the user. I'm new to programming with IMAP. Where can I find the reference about that? Any help will be appreciated.

    IMAP specifications:

    It is the first link that appears in Google if you search for "IMAP".

    I already read the text several days ago, but I prefer to have some references in Java programming with IMAP (some code will be big help).

    Anyway, thanks.

    Q: Can I use the JavaMail APIs to add new user accounts to my mail server, remove user accounts from my mail server, or change the passwords for user accounts on my mail server?

    A: The JavaMail API does not include any facilities for adding, removing, or changing user accounts. There are no standards in this area; every mail server handles this differently.

    There is a difference between a "user account" and a "mail folder".

    You may want to read the RFC and tutorial again.
