Does the JavaMail API provide any facility to create an Address book, so that address lookup can be developed?

John Zukowski

There is no capabilities for creating or accessing an address book as part of the JavaMail API.

If you were interested in creating your own, consider using JDBC, property files, or some other mechanism to create / access an address book. Using JNI/COM to access an Outlook address book is another option, but then your program won't work on Linux, Solaris, or most other non-Windows machines.
