Hi Expert

I have a sample code that sends out mail but I got this Error


Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/activation/DataSource
      at MailClient.sendMail(MailClient.java:21)
      at MailClient.main(MailClient.java:55)

it's  failing at not sure why

      Message message = new MimeMessage(session);



import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activity.*;
import javax.sql.DataSource;

public class MailClient {

	public void sendMail(String mailServer, String from, String to,
			String subject, String messageBody) throws MessagingException,
			AddressException {
		// Setup mail server
		Properties props = System.getProperties();
		props.put("mail.smtp.host", mailServer);

		// Get a mail session
		Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);

		// Define a new mail message
		Message message = new MimeMessage(session);
		message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
		message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(to));
		message.setSubject(subject);

		// Create a message part to represent the body text
		BodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
		messageBodyPart.setText(messageBody);

		// use a MimeMultipart as we need to handle the file attachments
		Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();

		// add the message body to the mime message
		multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

		// add any file attachments to the message

		// Put all message parts in the message
		message.setContent(multipart);

		// Send the message
		Transport.send(message);

	}

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		try {
			MailClient client = new MailClient();
			String server = "mailserver.com";
			String from = "Anthonio.Booysen@investec.co.za";
			String to = "Anthonio.Booysen@investec.co.za";
			String subject = "Test";
			String message = "Testing";

			client.sendMail(server, from, to, subject, message);
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace(System.out);
		}

	}
}

javax.mail.SendFailedException: Invalid Addresses;
  nested exception is:
      class com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPAddressFailedException: 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for Anthonio.Booysen@investec.co.za

      at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.rcptTo(SMTPTransport.java:1130)

it may be an invalid address as per the SMPT server you use, talk to your adminsitrator!

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.

I took the smtp server address from a other project and verified it with my outlook. Does this mean the firewall does not allow me to sent mails?
