Hi All,
My Application requires to send e-mail notification to the users.Generally we use Java Mail package
which will send smtp messages to the mail server.But This Application resides in the intranet where by
the Mail server doesn't accecpt any mail requests other than Lotus Notes.That is the security Policy.
I guess now I have only one way.I need to invoke Lotus Notes mail components from my Application
so that effectively Lotus notes send the e-mail request to Mail server.
Could anybody suggests me where I can find Java Interface to Lotus Notes components?
If anybody sends me some sample Code I would be delighted very much.
Thanks in Advance

No,That is not the reason.I am able to send request to Intranet Mail Server.But The Mail Servers won't accept requests from any application other than Lotus Notes.That is the reason I want to trigger Lotus Notes components(instead of Java Mail) so that ultimately Mail Server receives requests from Lotus Notes eventhough My Application is triggering.
Please Let me know whether you understood my problem.
Thanks in Advance

Now I understand.
May i what webserver,servlet container,OS you are using ?
because if you are running a servlet containver with IIS, you can send email with default windows SMTP server. Yes its working with Lotus notes R5 for a email sent from my application.
if you are using apache-unix-tomcat then u have to install JAMES and try sending the email with JAMES as your SMTP server.
is that making sense ??

I am using Apache Tomcat,Windows for My development but I will be deplyoing my application in Unix-IBM Websphere Architecture.Basically It was only security policy that not to send requests from other applications.
How does the JAMES sever routes the mail requests?
Does it route it to some other SMTP Server(Lotus Notes) or will it directly deliver the packets using Internet SMTP host??

It seems that James Mail Server work on Unix Platforms.
But First I want to test in Windows Environment.I need to get the approval before I move into to Unix Environment.Can you suggest me some other SMTP Server which takes the packets from the application and routes to Internet SMTP Host using Proxy Server.If not possible,then Application should trigger the Lotus Notes using some Java API.Is it possible??
