Hi Greg,
	Great to know you have it ready. I had promised of writing it up 
long back. I faltered and could never go beyond the basic implementaton 
of about 15-16 classes, none of which have been released. Wasted most
of my little free time on reading RFCs and trying to understand Camel and
impove upon Javamail and ......... :(
	Gaurav has also done a lot of research on this topic and can provide
some good feedback.
	So, Where's the code ;-)
