You need to download and install http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/. It comes with examples

Or you might try this:


      public static void send_email(error_message, email_address) {
            try {
                  sun.net.smtp.SmtpClient client = new sun.net.smtp.SmtpClient("smtp.freeserve.net");
                  client.from("sysadmin@somewhere.com");
                  client.to("sysadmin@summer-retreat-about-to-be-irritated.com");
                  // or really 'email_address'
                  PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(client.startMessage(), true);
                  out.println("Subject: Error");
                  out.println("Pack your bags chum and get back to the office pronto - here's the bad news:");
                  out.println(error_message);
                  client.closeServer();
                  System.out.println("Message sent");
            }
            catch (Exception e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
            }
