How so?  Create a mail message, add recipients, subject, content, send to
server.   Easy as pie.  Even without javax.mail (a bit over engineered),
there are ez-mail classes (or wrappers).  I've been using the same simple
MailBean for years with servlets and JSP pages.

I am firmly against protocol proliferation when it is unnecessary.  If/when
there is a change from SMTP/IMAP/POP/NNTP to some XML messaging protocol(s),
there would need to be RFCs with the same kind of scope as the current
protocols.  Not ad hoc SOAP or RMI interfaces.
