    hi!

    I am creating a web application in which i need to create a form by which user can create an email id on mail server. This is like any email service provider do, like gmail(for creating an email account on their site).

    I doubt you'll find anything in the java mail API that allows you to create an account. Does your mail service software provide an API for creating new users, or is it something the system administrator has to do on the underlying operating system? One way to simplify the problem would be to write your own SMTP server in Java so that it gives you the features you want. It's not rocket science to write a SMTP server, but there are a lot of standards you need to adhere to if you want other SMTP servers to 'play ball' with yours.
