i have two mail servers , namely A and B .
I am using javamail to send a message from A to B .
With a written program on A sending a message to B , i want the B server to automatically check incoming mails , how do i do that ? Do i need to use actionListeners , or is there any other way , if so , how do i write them ? Is there any examples on the web which i can reference ?

Mail servers don't "check mail". SMTP servers receive connections and make transfers. POP and IMAP servers provide access to mailstores (mailboxes, folders), when requested by mail clients. Usually an SMTP server drops off incoming mail for local delivery, to the mailstores/mailboxes, which are then served by POP or IMAP servers.

Mail clients "check for new mail", on their respective mail servers.
