          String mailfile = "mail_file";
          try {
               String x = null;
               Session session = NotesFactory.createSession(x, x, pwd);
               Database db = session.getDatabase(server_name, mailfile);
               Document email = db.createDocument();
               email.appendItemValue("From","the junk address");              
               email.appendItemValue("Subject", "Test Secure E-Mail ");
               email.appendItemValue("ReturnReceipt", "1");

        Session session = NotesFactory.createSession(x, x, pwd);
        Session session = NotesFactory.createSession(serverName, userID, pwd);

Hi arun2702,

Limit your initial try block to those three statements, then try successive statments in their own try blocks, so you can diagnose which statment is giving an access violation.  You might also try recording session.getEffectiveUserName() to see if your login ID is what you expect, then use the Notes client with the ID file that matches that login to do the equivalent operations...

    - create a memo
    - set subject text
    - set the return receipt option, signature
    - embed a file in the message body
    - send

Note that you should have a replaceItemValue("Form","Memo")... and that replaceItemValue is much preferable to appendItemValue.

Check your server document. Or it may be due to corruption???

You would only get that if a Domino server tried to start up, and teh ID it started up with did not have a server settings document in the directory.  Now, perhaps you are trying to do something on your workstation that makes Domino think you are trying to run a server process?
