hi, i am using javamail API to send mails, my code is executed but the mails are goes to badmail folder of the host.

my code is below.

package com;

import java.util.Properties;

import javax.mail.Authenticator;
import javax.mail.Message;
import javax.mail.MessagingException;
import javax.mail.PasswordAuthentication;
import javax.mail.Session;
import javax.mail.Transport;
import javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;

public class SendMailUsingAuthentication {

private static final String SMTP_HOST_NAME = "";
private static final String SMTP_AUTH_USER = "";
private static final String SMTP_AUTH_PWD = "Password1";
private static final String emailMsgTxt = "Please visit my project at ";
private static final String emailSubjectTxt = "Order Confirmation Subject";
private static final String emailFromAddress = "";

// Add List of Email address to who email needs to be sent to
private static final String[] emailList = { "","",""};

public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
SendMailUsingAuthentication smtpMailSender = new SendMailUsingAuthentication();
smtpMailSender.postMail(emailList, emailSubjectTxt, emailMsgTxt,
System.out.println("Sucessfully Sent mail to All Users");

public void postMail(String recipients[], String subject, String message,
String from) throws MessagingException {
boolean debug = false;

//Set the host smtp address
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");
props.put("", SMTP_HOST_NAME);
props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

Authenticator auth = new SMTPAuthenticator();
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, auth);


// create a message
Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);

// set the from and to address
InternetAddress addressFrom = new InternetAddress(from);

InternetAddress[] addressTo = new InternetAddress[recipients.length];
for (int i = 0; i < recipients.length; i++) {
addressTo[i] = new InternetAddress(recipients[i]);
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, addressTo);

// Setting the Subject and Content Type
msg.setContent(message, "text/plain");

* SimpleAuthenticator is used to do simple authentication when the SMTP
* server requires it.
private class SMTPAuthenticator extends javax.mail.Authenticator {

public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
String username = SMTP_AUTH_USER;
String password = SMTP_AUTH_PWD;
return new PasswordAuthentication(username, password);
I agree. Here's the link:
