hi

I already used javamail program to send mail thro' browser on one server. But now when I used the same program on other server it's not worked. when I asked to
my host he said his SMTP is authenticated. he said i have to enter into their smtpserver by providing username and password(using program) and then sent mail to others.

Let me know how to do this.

Use this:

transport.connect(
  host, username, password);

and you MIGHT have to enable auth:
props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

Did you make sure you set:
props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

and then tried to connect using the hostname, username and password?

If that didn't work then you may have to set up an authenticator:

class SMTPAuthenticator extends Authenticator
{
public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication()
{
String username="userid";
String password="passwd";
return new PasswordAuthentication(username, password);
}
}

Then you pass the authenticator to your Session as follows:

//Setup authenticator
Authenticator auth = new SMTPAuthenticator();
// Get session
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, auth);
props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");
Transport trans = null;
MimeMessage msg = new MimeMessage(session);
trans = session.getTransport(address);
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(fromAdress));
......


Also make sure you are using JavaMail 1.2 or later.
