Don't use the sun's smtp package.. that is not supported any more.

basic code btw:
<%@ page import="java.util.Properties,javax.mail.*,javax.mail.internet.*,*" %>

      Properties p = System.getProperties();
      p.put("", Host);

      MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(Session.getInstance(p, null));
      message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(""));
      message.setSubject("test email subject");
      message.setText("test email text");
