I'm very new to Java mail. For hostname, i called up my ISP (rogers high speed cable in toronto) and got the name to be just "smtp". Every tutorial i have seen uses more than that for the hostname(after compiling my program, i got "can't connect to SMTP server" during runtime) . Could someone using Rogers high speed internet , plz verify if thats the correct host name and if theres something else i need.
I apologize if this is not the correct forum to ask this. Thanks for any help!.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
