 Already contacted behind the scenes.

 Well, I have contributed a bit already, a small patch from me was
committed. Otherwise I am a bit overhelmed already, two working places,
studying for my secondary degree, and sent to an other course I feel
dizzy sometimes. :( But I do plan to further improve free Java
alternatives. Especially one.

 I think you are right, it's only strange for me.

 Well, as discussed I have asked upstream (who uses com.sun.mail.*) to
change their code. If they don't do it, I think I will be forced to do
that on my own.
