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");

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!
