hello, im doing a project on email account which must include at least 2 constructors, a finaliser, a display method(), a menu that allows to test all fuctions of the class and a main()

i got the attributes of email : address, password, currentName, noOfmails
and the methods are logine(), inputPassword(), validateUser(), changePassword(), validate(), receiveMail(), deleteMail(), deleteAllMail()

My program is as follows, pls do check

//project: email account

}//the end of constructor


//overloaded constructor

this.address=add;
this.password=pass;
this.currentName=cName;
this.noOfMails=numMails;
}

No.

You don't ask any questions, you order us around, why should we help you?

If there's something wrong and you can't find it, tell us what it is and what it should do and then ask nicely.
Maybe then we can hint you towards a solution.

Hi everyone,

If you are doing an email client, its better for you to use javamail api.
I tried to use sockets and could not get it right myself.

For infomation about javamail, its better for you to check sun's official javamail tutorials on using this api.

Hi everyone,

I really don't beleive this jwenting, i received an email from nishad and this is what he said

"Actually if u didnt want to help dont help."

I don't actually know how he arrived at this by me telling him to use javamail.
I really didn't hope that i would actually write the program for him and mail it to him.

sheesh what is the world coming to
Be nice to someone and they blast you
