I'm writing a server program to receive mails from microsoft outlook 2000.

I need help on how i can achieve this, is it possible using the JAVAMAIL package?, and how do i force outlook to send mails to this program.

You probably want to pull out email from a MS Exchange mailbox and NOT from MS Outlook. MS Outlook usually pulls out mails from a mailbox residing in MS Exchange + sends mail to Exchange which sends them out

Yes you can do retrieve emails from Exchange with JavaMail. You will have to use IMAP to achieve this. The JavaMail distributions contains an example of a mail client which uses IMAP. Also, if you want to send mail with JavaMail, you will find examples in the distribution which use SMTP for this.
