 props.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.server");
  props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

Should be:

  props.put( "mail.host", "ip or hostname for your SMTP server" ) ;
  props.put( "mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");

You need to fill in the server name or ip address of the SMTP server you want to use for sending mail...

different exception?

I'm pretty sure your exception is because;

>  props.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.server");

smtp.server is not a valid hostname or ip address?

>smtp.server is not a valid hostname or ip address?

actually the server name is different that i'm using(here is just an example), which is the same as provided by service provider to configure outlook. so the error might be different.

Hmmmm...  this seems to say you are doing it right:

And adds something about authentication...

kennethxuCommented:
look at the code that you have posted, you shouldn't be getting ServletException in the page, because you have catched exception yourself and print it out.
Are you sure that the code you posted is actully the one been running?

>> this is for getting the exact exception
hmm, the servlet engine will wrap the exception so you actually didn't get the EXACT one, you try/catch was good to determine the exact exception. the exact exception might help use to determine the problem.

if you would like to see the exception in web page instead of server stderr, you can use:
ex.printStackTrace ( new PrintWriter( out ) );

hi all,

the problem is solved. the prolem is basically due to the server policy of autheticating a user. the server on which the web site is hosted needs Log onto pop server first as security protocol and then they will allow to send the mails.

thanks all of you for trying to help...
