    Java mail api supports pop, imap and smtp protocols.
    I have written codes (with\without GUI) to read my gmail and send mails using smtp protocol.
    I can give you sample codes if u want.
    Cheers!

    No as far as I'm aware there is now Java live mail or anything like that.

    The JavaMail you are referring to is simply an API for sending and receiving/downloading emails. You will still need an email account somewhere.
