Stuff like this is hard to get right in a JSP; I'd advise to follow Bears suggestion of using a bean or a servlet. You could also use one of any number of SMTP classes that are available on the web, instead of writing your own.
And just to nitpick: the fact that no message arrives at your account does not mean that no message was sent. That's why it's helpful to use a mail server you control for testing purposes, so you can check the log files.

Yahoo doesn't do relaying. They don't want to have people using their accounts to send out spam.
You're testing an application? So when it goes live, will you be using some other server? If so, that will be a server where you can work with the administrator to make sure it will send out your e-mail messages, right? You should get together with that administrator sooner rather than later to learn the facts of life with respect to Internet e-mail.
Otherwise your project may be in trouble. Administrators of e-mail servers don't open their systems to everybody in the world. They need to know who you are, and they need to know that you won't be sending spam. Yahoo can't do that.

that mean we need to setup a mail server in order to know what the error within sending ?
