      Description

      I would like more control over the MimeMessage instance that is created by Email.java in buildMimeMessage().

      Currently it simply instantiates one directly - new MimeMessage(). It would be nice if it called a protected method called something like createMimeMessage(session) so that I could override that with my own subclass.

      Why would I want to subclass it? So I can set the Message-Id on the outgoing message. See this link:

      http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/FAQ.html#msgid

      I've got my own subclass ready but I have no way to hook into Email.java to use it.
