How can we get the display name of an email id In JavaMail??


Is there are method which provide me the email holders name when I provide the email id...?


Eg: if I have a email id as foo@bar.com I should get a name such as Foo Bar.

If it is on a remote Unix system you would have to log in there and look up the username in the /etc/passwd file, or in the NIS passwd map. If it is on an Exchange Server you have to log in to the Exchange Server and look it up in the Global Address Book there. If it is on an LDAP server you have to search for it there (maybe have to log in first).
