4     JavaMail(TM) API 1.4.3 release
5     ------------------------------
7     Welcome to the 1.4.3 release of the JavaMail API implementation.
9     Please refer to CHANGES.txt for a list of the changes since the
10     previous release.
12     Please see the FAQ at http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/FAQ.html
14     Protocol Providers
15     ------------------
17     The JavaMail API jar file "mail.jar" includes the full JavaMail API
18     implementation and *all* the Sun protocol providers - IMAP, SMTP, and
19     POP3. The simplest way to use the JavaMail API is to just use the
20     mail.jar file and ignore the other jar files in this package.
22     In some cases it may be desirable to minimize the size of the JavaMail
23     API code used by an application (e.g., when downloading with an applet).
24     In this case you might want to include the "mailapi.jar" file, which
25     includes *no* protocol providers, along with just the jar file for the
26     protocol provider you need. For example, an applet that only needs to
27     send mail could use the "mailapi.jar" file and the "smtp.jar" file.
29     An important note when using the separate protocol provider jar files:
31     - You can't mix and match the Sun protocol providers between different
32     releases of the JavaMail API. The Sun protocol providers depend on
33     implementation-specific utility APIs within the mailapi.jar file.
34     (Third party protocol providers that don't depend on these APIs
35     should work fine.)
38     NOTE: The Sun protocol provider documentation that was previously
39     included in this file is now available in javadoc format, see
40     docs/javadocs/index.html in the directory where you extracted
41     the JavaMail API zip file. This documentation describes how to
42     use features of the Sun protocol providers to directly access
43     some features of the SMTP, IMAP, and POP3 protocols that are
44     not otherwise supported by the standard JavaMail API.
47     SASL Support
48     ------------
50     On systems that support the Java SASL API (javax.security.sasl, JSR-28),
51     such as J2SE 5.0 and later, the IMAP provider can use the SASL API to
52     find an appropriate authentication mechanism. The SASL API also allows
53     you to plug in support for custom authentication mechanisms. See The
54     Java SASL API Programming and Deployment Guide at
55     http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/security/sasl/sasl-refguide.html
56     for details on developing custom SASL mechanisms. See the javadocs for
57     the com.sun.mail.imap package for the properties required to enable and
58     configure SASL support.
61     DSN Support
62     -----------
64     This release of JavaMail includes EXPERIMENTAL support for creating
65     and parsing Delivery Status Notifications, as defined by RFC 3462
66     and RFC 3464. To make use of this support you need to include dsn.jar
67     in your CLASSPATH along with mail.jar. See the javadocs for the
68     com.sun.mail.dsn package for more details.
70     The DSN package also provides support for creating and parsing Message
71     Disposition Notifications, as defined by RFC 3798.
73     The APIs unique to this package should be considered EXPERIMENTAL.
74     They may be changed in the future in ways that are incompatible with
75     applications using the current APIs.
78     NTLM Support
79     ------------
81     This release of JavaMail includes EXPERIMENTAL support for the
82     Microsoft NTLM authentication mechanism used by Exchange. See the
83     file NTLMNOTES.txt for details.
86     OSGi Support
87     ------------
89     The JavaMail jar files are now OSGi bundles. Please let us know
90     of any problems using JavaMail with OSGi.
93     How to submit bug reports
94     -------------------------
96     If you've found a bug, or if you just need help figuring out how to use
97     the JavaMail API, please try to include the following information in
98     your message to us:
100     - a program or code snippet that shows the problem
101     - the platform you are using
102     - the mail server (vendor name, version number) you are using
103     - your environment variable settings
104     - a stack trace, if appropriate
105     - a protocol trace, after turning on session debugging, if appropriate
107     Most of the problems reported to us fail to include enough of the above
108     information to allow us to diagnose your problem. It will save you and
109     us time if you include this information in your first message to us.
111     By far the most common problems we see are:
113     Your problem: Something doesn't work right when talking to my mail server.
114     Our response: Turn on session debugging and send us the protocol trace.
115     See the demo program documentation for how to turn on
116     session debugging for the demo programs. In your own
117     program, call "session.setDebug(true);".
119     Your problem: javax.mail or javax.activation classes not found when compiling.
120     Our response: You didn't set CLASSPATH correctly to find mail.jar and
121     activation.jar. See README.txt.
123     Your problem: NoSuchProviderException - No such provider for rfc822.
124     Our response: You unjar'ed mail.jar. Don't.
126     Your problem: How do I create a message with an attachment?
127     Our response: Create a message with a MimeMultipart content. See the
128     sendfile.html and msgmultisendsample.java demo programs.
130     Please check the FAQ at http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/FAQ.html
131     before submitting bug reports.
133     Send your bug reports to:
135     javamail@sun.com
140     A list of the known limitations, bugs, issues:
141     ----------------------------------------------
143     1. This version of JavaMail will only work in applets when using
144     the Java(TM) Plug-in (http://java.sun.com/products/plugin),
145     which is part of the current Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
146     available from Sun at http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp.
148     2. Internationalization. Parameter encoding in MIME headers, as
149     specified by RFC2231, *has* been implemented. Note that
150     this covers only certain special cases not covered by the MIME
151     specification. MIME specifies encoding of text in the Subject
152     and address headers, and JavaMail fully supports such encoding.
153     Most mailers don't support RFC2231.
155     To enable RFC2231 support in parameter lists, set the System
156     properties mail.mime.encodeparameters and mail.mime.decodeparameters
157     to "true".
159     3. We've received reports of IMAP authentication failures on the
160     Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, enterprise edition. This is due to
161     a bug in the Microsoft server and the "Service Pack 1 for Exchange
162     Server 5.5" apparently fixes this server bug. The service pack can
163     be downloaded from the Microsoft website.
165     4. Due to a problem in the Microsoft Exchange IMAP server, insufficient
166     number of bytes may be retrieved when reading big messages. There
167     are two ways to workaround this Exchange bug:
169     (a) The Exchange IMAP server provides a configuration option called
170     "fast message retrieval" to the UI. Simply go to the site, server
171     or recipient, click on the "IMAP4" tab, and one of the check boxes
172     is "enable fast message retrieval". Turn it off and the octet
173     counts will be exact. This is fully described at
174     http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q191504
176     (b) Set the "mail.imap.partialfetch" property to false. You'll have
177     to set this property in the Properties object that you provide to
178     your Session.
180     5. Certain IMAP servers do not implement the IMAP Partial FETCH
181     functionality properly. This problem typically manifests as corrupt
182     email attachments when downloading large messages from the IMAP
183     server. To workaround this server bug, set the
184     "mail.imap.partialfetch"
185     property to false. You'll have to set this property in the Properties
186     object that you provide to your Session.
