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?!
