<head>
</head>
<%@ page language="java" import="java.sql.*, java.util.ArrayList" %>
<body>
<form name="SubForm" method="post" action="send_mail.jsp">
      <table width="50%" border="1" >
      <tr>
            <td width="108" height="34">To : </td>
            <td width="363">

            <td><textarea name="mailtext"></textarea>
            </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td height="34" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
            <td valign="top"><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit Information">
            </td>
      </tr>
      </table>
</form>
</body>
</html>

send_mail.jsp
----------------

<%@ page language="java" import="java.sql.*, java.util.ArrayList" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.*, javax.mail.*, javax.mail.internet.*" %>
<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<table width="50%" border="0" >
<tr>
<td>
<%
      String emailAdd = request.getParameter("receiver");
      String mailBody = request.getParameter("mailtext");
      boolean mail_error = false;
      String errMsg = "";

      try
      {
            Properties props = new Properties();
            props.put("mail.smtp.host", "127.0.0.1");  //replace 127.0.0.1 with the name u specify in your mail server
            Session s = Session.getInstance(props,null);
            MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(s);
            InternetAddress from = new InternetAddress(emailAdd);
            message.setFrom(from);
            InternetAddress to = new InternetAddress("kheefatt@yahoo.com"); //your email address
            message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, to);
            message.setSubject("Mail Test!");
            message.setText(mailBody);
            Transport.send(message);
      }
      catch (Exception ex)
      {
            String titleMsg = "Error Exception";
            errMsg = ex.getMessage();
            mail_error = true;
      }      
      if (mail_error==false)
            out.write("Thank you for subscribing to our newsletter.<BR>");
      else if (mail_error==true)
      {
            out.write("There's an error in the mail server. Please try again later!<BR>\n");
      }
%>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Remember that you need a mail server. You can one free here. The mail server must be running when executing this mail function! All the best to you!
