Hi,
 I am trying to send an attachment with an email sent from a servlet. I can send normal emails fine (i.e. emails without attachments). However I'm not to sure how to do so with an attachment.
Here is my code for an email without an attachment. Could you let me know how to modify it to include the sending of an email..

My Code:

  public void emailAttachmentTestRequest(HttpServletRequest request,
                                HttpServletResponse response,
                                HttpSession httpSession) throws ServletException, IOException {

    System.err.println("--- emailing AttachmentTest");

    String from = null;
    String to = null;
    SmtpClient smtp = null;
    PrintStream msg = null;

    smtp = new SmtpClient("smtp.test.com");
    from = "test@test.com";
    to = "test@test.com";

    smtp.from(from);
    smtp.to(to);
    msg = smtp.startMessage();

    try {
      msg.println("From: " + from);
      msg.println("To: " + to);
      msg.println("Subject: Testing Email");
      msg.println("This is the Test text");
      smtp.closeServer();
    }
    catch (IOException e) {
      System.err.println("err sending email" + e.getMessage());
    }
  }

From reading an article. It loks to me that using SMTPClient it isnot possible to send attachments with this. If you know how to use the JavaMail class to do so then could you let me know also.

Just download JavaMail API. Look at the MimeMultipart and BodyPart classes. There is tutorial in pdf format and full example code for sending mail atachments:

Be cool and use this standard J2EE API unstead of na old one.
