javamail api to access public/shared folders

I am new to javamail api.  I tried the following code and I can get all the sub-folders in my email account.

My question is how to access public folder, and other user's shared folder (all in the same MS Exchange Server).
I can't find anyway to go "up" beyound my email account.

Please help.

Joey :(

String host = "machineHostName";
String username = "donmainName\\userName";
String password = "userPassword";


try {
  Properties props = new Properties();
  Javax.mail.Session mailSession = javax.mail.Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
  Store store = mailSession.getStore("imap");
  store.connect(host, username, password);
  Folder folder = store.getDefaultFolder();
  Folder[] folders = folder.list();
  for(int i=0;i<folders.length; i++) {
     out.println(folders[i].getName() + "<br>");
  }
  store.close();
}
catch(Exception e) {
    out.println(e);
}

Once you have connected to the store, I think that you could try the following code:

Folder publicFolder = store.getFolder("Public Folders/");
Folder[] folders = publicFolder.list("*");  

I can't take credit for this, I found in on jGuru.com

One question I had for you is did you run into any problems getting calling store.connect(<host>, <user>, <pw)?  I have tried specifing user as "MyDomain\\NtLogin"
and as "MyDomain\\NtLogin\\FirstName LastName".  

I keep getting a time out error.  
Any help with this would be great.
Here is my question so you can get some points if you can answer it:
