geostp, if you want the complete srevices of pop3 protocol, you had better download one of the many free pop3 packages that are on the net. For example try: http://members.tripod.com/~mpandit/POP3download.html
If however all you want to do is send email using java, you may want to use the SMTP protocol. You can implement the protocol yourself (if you need more information ask), and you can use internal java classes. These classes are not documented but they work ok. Here is the info for using the internal class (use import) sun.net.smtp.SmtpClient :
public synchronized class SmtpClient extends TransferProtocolClient
{
    String mailhost;
    SmtpPrintStream message;
    public SmtpClient()
    public SmtpClient(String string)
    public void closeServer()
    public void from(String string)
    public String getMailHost()
    public PrintStream startMessage()
    public void to(String string)
}

Use the constructor with the url of the mail server. fill the from and the to (through the functions), use the startMessage to get a printstream, to which you write the mail, and finally use the closeServer() to send.
Good luck,
G.
