Hi,

I am trying to send mail using JavaMail, via an SMTP server, I use authentication..

However I get an authentication required error....

Here is the output script

Here is the Java
        Properties          mEmlProps   =new Properties(System.getProperties());
        Authenticator auth=new myAuth();
       
        if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
            mLog.debug("to:"+to);
            mLog.debug("from:"+from);
            mLog.debug("subject:"+subject);
            mLog.debug("msg:"+msg);
            System.out.println("to:"+to);
            System.out.println("from:"+from);
            System.out.println("subject:"+subject);
            System.out.println("msg:"+msg);
        }
        mEmlProps.put("mail.smtp.host",mProps.getProperty("mail.smtp.host"));
        Session mSession=Session.getDefaultInstance(mEmlProps,auth);
        mSession.setDebug(true);//mLog.isDebugEnabled());
        MimeMessage mMsg=new MimeMessage(mSession);
        try {
            InternetAddress mFromAddress=new InternetAddress(from);
            mMsg.setFrom(mFromAddress);
        } catch (AddressException e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        } catch (MessagingException e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        }
        try {
            InternetAddress mToAddress=new InternetAddress(to);
            mMsg.setRecipient(RecipientType.TO,mToAddress);
        } catch (AddressException e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        } catch (MessagingException e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        }
        try {
            mMsg.setSubject(subject);
        } catch (MessagingException e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        }
        try {
            mMsg.setText(msg);
//            mMsg.setContent(msg,"text/plain; charset=UTF-8");
        } catch (MessagingException e) {
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        }
        try {
            Transport.send(mMsg);
        } catch (MessagingException e) {
            System.out.println(e);
            if (mLog.isDebugEnabled()) {
                mLog.debug(e.toString());
            }
        }

try adding:

mEmlProps.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

if that don't work check with your mail servers administrator.

 Also

"When you connect to the Transport you can pass a username and password:

Transport transport =
  session.getTransport("smtp");
transport.connect(
  host, username, password);

Unfortunately, this doesn't use the Authenticator class in javax.mail, so you would have to build in your own mechanism to prompt the user for this information."
