Session s = Session.getInstance(props, null);

MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(s);
InternetAddress from = new InternetAddress("admin@luckyascot");

InternetAddress toAddress = new InternetAddress("");

message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, toAddress);

message.setSubject("This is a Private and Confidential Mail From");

message.setText("Here is Your Password");

This doesn't look like a programming error.
It looks like the SMTP server is rejecting messages from you.

Most ISPs and web hosting companies are tightening up their rules for relaying through their servers.

Javamail's session object has a setDebug(boolean) method.
If you set it to true, much of the SMTP traffic will be printed to stdout.
This can be helpful in when debugging SMTP settings.

I'm going to move this from JSP to Other Java APIs where JavaMail is discussed since this is not really a JSP specific issue.

instead of using addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, toAddress)
use setRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, toAddress)

might help

Hi Talha,

props.put cannot have three parameters.You should modify like :

properties.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");
properties.put("mail.smtp.user", "user");
properties.put("mail.smtp.password", "pass"
