As this request remains unaddressed 9+ years hence, I suggest the Subject has limited application and current project resources seem occupied elsewhere.

May I suggest either (1) downloading and revising the code or (2) submitting a code patch for project review?  In any case I shall close this issue 30 days hence as "Wont Do" if there is no further interest expressed.

further audit evidence that might be of interest is whether a revocation authority has been consulted or not (OCSP or CDP as per

When trying to use mail in a financial services environment, more and more, email needs to be fully auditable to be compliant.
Therefore, also a sender must be able to produce detailed evidence after the fact that mail submissions have been executed with due care.

Therefore, I suggest to add a new "" attribute that reports on at least the level "basic" and "advanced" what it did:

  • E.g. "basic" could report in a single line

- certificate domain, key size, expiration, issuing CA, as well as the stream cipher employed (e.g.: was it only 40 bit?)

  • "advanced" would also provide the certificates used in full, and possibly the session key (for later recovery of an archived transmission cryped stream in case DHE), size of transmission, etc.

A first step would be to simply print that "accountability info" to stdout/stderr, later the javamail API hopefully eventually will provide an extended transport.send() interface to return such audit related objects.
