> It looks like Oracle's JavaMail implementation is a lot more recent than the Geronimo
implementation.
>             <dependency>
>                 <groupId>com.sun.mail</groupId>
>                 <artifactId>javax.mail</artifactId>

>             </dependency>
> My main problem with Geronimo is that it does not support proper IMAP authentication,
therefore I *have* to use Oracle's implementation during my integration tests. To avoid having
multiple implementations hanging around inside the same process (AFAIK you cannot just manage
the release because of differences in the internals used), I want to trigger a discussion
about whether it would be better to switch to Oracle JavaMail implementation. Their bug reporting
now seems independent of Oracle's own bug processing system, my own inquiries have been answered
pretty quickly and efficiently. Is there any issue with the license? AFAIK it allows the distribution
under the GPL+classpath exception, so it should pose no hindrance except for the requirement
of proper license inclusion.
