JavaMail with SSL

Hi,

I have a problem checking a mailbox using JavaMail API with SSL. The mail server accepts only SSL connections.

Here is the fragment of code:

Security.addProvider(new com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider());            
Security.setProperty("ssl.SocketFactory.provider", "DummySSLSocketFactory");
            
Properties props = new Properties();
props.setProperty("mail.imap.port", "993");
props.setProperty("mail.imap.socketFactory.port", "993");

Session session = Session.getInstance(props, null);
Store store = session.getStore("imap");

store.connect(host, username, password);

When coming to the last line, the application (FastMail) is waiting for a minute and then throws a message:

javax.mail.MessagingException: ;
  nested exception is:
      java.io.IOException
      at com.sun.mail.imap.IMAPStore.protocolConnect(IMAPStore.java:441)
      at javax.mail.Service.connect(Service.java:233)
      at javax.mail.Service.connect(Service.java:134)
      at fastmail.FastMail.getMessages(FastMail.java:33)
      at fastmail.FastMail.main(FastMail.java:62)

Could you help me to debug this problem?

add this property as well

props.setProperty("mail.smtp.socketFactory.class", "javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory");

OK added, but the result is almost the same - the application hangs up without any message at

store.connect(host, username, password);

> props.setProperty("mail.smtp.socketFactory.class",
> "javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory");

sorry about typo, this should be

props.setProperty("mail.imap.socketFactory.class", "javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory");

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Oops, I have found the error! The full path to the class DummySSLSocketFactory should be pointed, including the package.

So instead of "DummySSLSocketFactory" I have put "fastmail.DummySSLSocketFactory" and everything works!
