E-Mail is the most exploited service in the Internet. We present an application based on Java mobile agents to automatically perform required steps to register an account. The use of roles makes the development easier and the application adaptable, while the use of the Java technology improves portability. Even if our approach is used for e-mail account creation, our results can be applied to other scenarios.
