How can you specify a group list as a recipient of a message. Group lists are a specific type of valid email address in the RFC822 spec under section A.1.5. The 'To:' header of an email sent to a group list would look like: To: Announcements: joe@terse.org, fred@barney.edu; To: Comment: address, address; They allow you to provide a comment on the list of people who are receiving the email.

Group lists are a specific type of valid email address in
the RFC822 spec under section A.1.5. The 'To:' header
of an email sent to a group list would look like:



To: Announcements: joe@terse.org, fred@barney.edu;


To: Comment: address, address;




They allow you to provide a comment on the list of people
who are receiving the email. The comment above is "Announcements".
The interesting thing is that the addresses portion
may be blank leaving you with just the comment portion:



To: Undisclosed-Recipients:;

I also run into this situation needing to use group-list. It is not apparent in the JavaMail doc where we can do this. I've try the get/setPersonal in InternetAddress but it only associates one name to one address, not a group of addresses. Neither does MimeMessage.setRecipients....
Anybody knows how to do this? Thanks!
