Nonsense. Everyone _and_ his dog has a mail API. Do a search and you
pull out loads.

Last time I looked there were also quite a few people doing providers,
but no one doing an IMAP provider as far as I remember.

David Brownell and I are both members of different JSR expert teams
(I'm on the servlet one, David is on the xml one I think) and have
