I am sending emails using java mail from my MDB in weblogic6.1. I want to get confirmation if the message is delivered or not. How can I achive this? If any one can suggest how I can track or come to know that there is some problem in mail server or any other problems due to which I am not able to send the message? What all I can do for failOver?

thanks.

The FAQ already provides several tracking mechanisms. However, none of them are standard or guaranteed to work.

I may be wrong on this (!?) but email is fire-and-forget (i.e. it's not guaranteed delivery). In fact there's no guarantee that you will even receive a bounce-back if, for example, the mail address is not recognised by the destination server. Some protocols allow you to request a read receipt from the destination server but I don't know how you'd do this in JavaMail and I think it's pretty hit and miss whether or not it's implemented in the destination server.

Regards.

javamail is does not offer any help in that area (rightfully so), however, you can look at the log files from you email server.
