Google Phone

So I read about it yesterday and I was not going to post on it...but this bothers me. Android phone choices are getting more complex...which actually hurts the developers in some ways.

Java and POP3 with Hotmail

A simple example as we learn more on the mail protocols:

package email;

import javax.mail.*;

public class MailUtils {

public static Store getStore(Account account) throws MessagingException {
return getStore(account.Email, account.Password);

public static Store getStore(String email, String password) throws MessagingException {
java.util.Properties props = new java.util.Properties();
props.setProperty("mail.pop3.socketFactory.class", "");
props.setProperty("mail.pop3.socketFactory.fallback", "false");
props.setProperty("mail.pop3.socketFactory.port", "995");

javax.mail.Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props);

Store store = session.getStore("pop3");
store.connect("", email, password);

return store;

public static Folder[] getFolders(Store store) throws MessagingException
return store.getDefaultFolder().list("*");

public static Folder getFolderByUrl(Store store, String url) throws MessagingException
return store.getFolder(new URLName(url));

public static Message[] getMessages(Folder folder) throws MessagingException {
try {;
Message[] messages = folder.getMessages();

for(Message m : messages) {
String s = m.getSubject();

return messages;
finally {
