    It's not small and easy task.

    You have to spend a lot of time on mail protocols and their specification,
    reading books ralted to Internet email, MIME, SMTP, IMAP, POP3 :

    Books on the JavaMail API and Internet Mail

    For beginning here's SUN's mail API, just to give you idea of
    all protocols and functionalities that you may need to implement.

    JavaMail API - FAQ

    After that you could use some open src Java mail server solutions
    to get you going like JAMES:

    good luck!
