     Eventually we hope to support mailet reloading and a special lib and classes directory
within the james directory that custom mailets can load from, but for now these are hopefully
some useful tips.

  +  <p>You can use Alexandria will setup/run JAMES on NT/2k/XP</p>
  +  <p>I created a .bat file called InstallJamesNTService.bat containing the
  +following (I used the Alexandria tomcat.bat file as my template, as you can
  +see):</p>
  +  <source>
  +
  +  @echo off
  +  echo --------
  +  echo Usage:   %0 jdk_home james_home (classic/hotspot/server)
  +  echo NOTE:    You MAY NOT use spaces in the path names.
  +  echo          JDK 1.3 does not come with hotpot server by default, you must
  +  echo          install this seperately if you wish to use it.
  +  echo Example: %0 c:\progra~1\jdk c:\progra~1\james classic
  +  echo --------
  +
  +  if "%1" == "" goto eof
  +  if "%2" == "" goto eof
  +  if "%3" == "" goto eof

  +  :eof
  +  </source>
  +  <p>
  +  I created another .bat file called UnistallJamesNTService containing the following 1
line:
  +  </p>
  +  <source>
  +  James -uninstall JamesMailServer
  +  </source>
  +  <p>By copying the 2 above .bat files and the JavaService.exe (follow the download
link  at http://www.alexandriasc.com/software/JavaService/index.html) to the <james>\bin
folder, I am able to install and uninstall the JamesMailServer NT service!
