What is mail.host? Does that represent the senders hostname or recepients host?. I tried giving host as "mail.yahoo.com" and "mail.transport.protocol" as "smtp" and from id as "myid@yahoo.com" and to as "toid@xxx.com". When i run the jsp i get "Attribute mail.yahoo.com has no value" "Internal server error".. Please give a solution and explanation about the "mail.host". I appreciate an early answer as i need it urgently. String host = "mail.yahoo.com"; String to = request.getParameter("to"); String from = request.getParameter("from"); String subject = request.getParameter("subject"); Stri   More>>

String host = "mail.yahoo.com";
String to = request.getParameter("to");
String from = request.getParameter("from");
String subject = request.getParameter("subject");
String messageText = request.getParameter("body");
boolean sessionDebug = false;


Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("mail.host", host);
props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");

Session mailSession = Session.getDefaultInstance(props);

mailSession.setDebug(sessionDebug);

Message msg = new MimeMessage(mailSession);

msg.setForm(new InternetAddress(from));
InternetAddress[] address = {new InternetAddress(to)};

msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);
msg.setSubject(subject);
msg.setSentDate(new Date());
msg.setText(messageText);

Transport.send(msg);

out.println("Mail was sent to " + to);
out.println("Mail from " + from);
out.println("Using Host" + host +".");

How do I use the Yahoo SMTP server to send mail wi... shows how to use Yahoo's SMTP server. You are using the wrong SMTP server name which I suspect is the problem.
