using SMTP protocol to GET emails

Hi,
I am writing a JSP where I need to GET (not SEND) emails. The proper way of doing this is to create a store object such as:  
Store mstore = msession.getStore("pop3");
Here it will take a protocol such as "pop3" or "imap" as its argument but not "smtp".  The problem is that I need to use the "smtp" protocol because this is what is being used within our facility to GET emails as well as to SEND them. This protocol is typically correct for SENDING but not for GETTING emails. Our network administrator has the IMAP and POP3 protocols turned off on the Microsoft Exchange server and he will not allow any changes here that may effect our emails. The problem is that the getStore function will not accept "smtp" as it is not a typical store protocol argument. This function will accept a full url as oppose to just the protocol. However, when trying to use a full url (URLName object) I still run into the same problem if "smtp" is the protocol.  I have also tried just about everything with the setting of the properties in my program. Still no success. How do I create a store object in my program so I can connect with an "smtp" protocol to GET emails?
                Thanks, Don

by RFC SMTP protocol can't be used to get mails !!!!
POP3 and IMAP can be used to get emails. (or you can use Microdoft API to exchange server ).
What do you mean by: "I need to use the "smtp" protocol because this is what is being used within our facility to GET emails as well as to SEND them" ??
Which program do you use to get emails ???

Hi Ramazanyich,
I access a Microsoft Exchange server to get my emails using Microsoft Outlook. Now I need to do this in a JSP.  I cannot connect here with POP3 or IMAP. So what protocol would I use  that getStore() would accept as an argument?
              Thanks, Don

Microsoft Outlook uses Microsoft's  API to access mail storage of Microsoft Exchange sever.
I don't know freeware Java API to access it.
I have found commersial JAVA API to Microsoft Exchange server

It canbe used with standard JavaMail API.
