I thought the tests only connect to an SMTP server? Presumably most
people have access to an SMTP server. You could ask a question in the
test configuration step (where you ask about awt tests).

Not necessarily. With IKVM, for example, you can pre-compile the jar
into a .NET executable and run that directly, that way no Java I/O is
involved in starting up the tests. I'm sure a similar scenario exists
