Throw exception if mail server doesn�t respond

Hello,

I am using javaMail API to send e-mails from a web application.

How can I throw an exception if the e-mail server does not respond within i.e. 2-3 seconds after calling the method Transport.send(msg);

I sometimes experiences that there is no connection or I get a slow response time from the e-mail server and the browser is just loading until the message is sent or it throws an SendFailedException, but it takes to long time?!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
