JavaMail Build Instructions

To download the most recent JavaMail source code you'll need Mercurial .

Once you've installed Mercurial, the following command will check out a copy of the source code:

 % hg clone

Or, to check out the version corresponding to a particular release, use a tag. For example, to check out the 1.4.7 version:

 % hg clone -r JAVAMAIL-1_4_7

To build JavaMail you'll need Maven .

To simply build everything, use:

 % cd javamail~mercurial
 % mvn install

You'll find the javax.mail.jar file in mail/target/javax.mail.jar.
