I have a small sample AddContactDetails.jsp page where the website visitors add their contact details. As a site admin, I want to be emailed whenever a new user adds his contact details. How to accomplish this?
1. My ISP provides MySql databse and Resin engine (J2EE 1.3.x). What mail APIs do I need to add to my WEB-INF folder?
2. What is the syntax (or psuedo-code) for sending email portion of this page?
3. What else do I need to add to my site to accomplish this?

To send email from Java you would use the JavaMail API. So I'm moving this to the Other Java APIs forum where the JavaMail-savvy hang out.
