The Java Apache Mail Enterprise Server (nicknamed James) is a free, Java, open-source SMTP, POP3, and NNTP News Server. In this article, I will show you how James can be set up to be your enterprise mail server solution.

Obtaining James and Meeting Prereqs

At the time this article was written, James was in version 2.1.3. To run this version, you need to have JRE 1.4 installed. (James can be downloaded here.) I assume that you are using James within a Windows environment. However, because James is Java-based, the platform of your choice is limited only by whether or not an appropriate Java Virtual Machine can be found to power James.
