no. a provider provides subclasses of the Store and/or Transport
classes. the Provider class is simply a convenience class to tell you
which providers are registered; it shouldn't be subclassed.

how about:

Properties props = System.getProperties();
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
URLName url = new URLName("mbox:///home/chris/mail");
Store store = session.getStore(url);
Folder root = store.getDefaultFolder();
Folder mymailbox = root.getFolder("mymailbox.mbox");

for further information, read the javamail documentation and the javadoc
for the mbox provider.
