The Mail service provides an interface for the creation and sending of mail. Mail server settings and externalized to a configuration file. The default implementation is single-threaded and uses the JavaMail APIs for its implementation.

An enhanced implementation could delegate message sending to a background service allowing the main application thread to continue running without the overhead of waiting for the mail server to confirm sending of the message. This background thread would include retries and some error handling.

Other enhancements may include the rendering of the message bodies through JSP processing or XSLTs.
