example use case: application wants to creates emails which clients
will download through POP3 (say). ATM this requires out-of-container
interactions to a separate email server. running JAMES in-container
would allow messages to be fed directly to JAMES without needing to
run SMTP.

JEE application

in the above example, the JEE application would create an email
message and then push it into a connector. the bus would route this to
an appropriate JAMES processing spool. these would then be served over
POP3 by the existing JAMES code.
