you have to implement SMTP protocol and send a message in your applet init's method
you can find some examples of SMTP implementation (with sources) at
www.gamelan.com, www.jars.com (just search for SMTP)

if you can't find anything or if you have more specific porblems please post them here

hope this helps

Maybe I am wrong, this is my first question here. But i think
that for 100 points the answer should be a little more specified.

I am sorry heyhey

open a socket connection on port 25 of SMTP server. Then send SMTP commands like From, Recepient, etc,. then finally send the data after the DATA command. Finally send "CRLF.CRLF". CRLF depends on the type of OS. It may be \r\n or \r. For detailed explaination of SMPT commands see in RFC'c.

if you visit this url

http://jars.developer.com/classes/jediSearch.cgi?string=SMTP&matchcase=NO&names=YES&keywords=YES&descriptions=YES&authorid=NOID&lastname=NONAME&age=NOAGE&start=NODATE&end=NODATE&maxhits=25&type=ALL&category=ALL&language=ALL&source=YES&nosource=YES&wholeword=NO&submit=Submit

you'll see a great number of mail-related resources - most of them with source code
the one i like is
http://www2.gasou.edu/student/gsi01417/java/mailwin/mailwin.html
+ code
http://www2.gasou.edu/student/gsi01417/java/mailwin/mailwin.java

this example is interactive. all that you have to do so that  the applet "sends you an e-mail every time someone visits your homepage" is to put the appropriate code the 'init' method of your applet.

if you really need this, i can take this example, rewrite it little and post the full working code here ...
hope this helps
