hi,

I am having a mail sending class which sends the mail using SMTP server. Can you tell me is there any way i can receive some response code and message to confirm that the mail has been sent successfully by SMTP server?

Any pointers could be helpful.

thanks!!

Is there a particular reason you're re-implementing SMTP instead of using the JavaMail API (which has readily accessible ways to get at response codes and such)?

Hi Ulf,

thanks for your quick response.

I am actually sending the mail using the java mail api to connect to smtp server and send it using the method:

msg.setSubject(subject);
msg.setContent(multipart);
transport.sendMessage(msg, msg.getAllRecipients());
transport.close();

Can you guide me if I can retrieve the response code and response message using the java api method. If there is pointer to code available for it, then it would be great!!

I was actually misremembering this - response codes are not part of JavaMail, but they're part of the underlying Transport implementation. If you cast the Transport object to SMTPTransport you have the getLastServerResponse and getLastReturnCode methods available. Not quite the standard way, but probably safe to do since no other SMTP Transport implementations are shipped with JavaMail.

hi Ulf,

Thanks for your response!!

Do you have any idea if there is any way in which i can get the report (containing status) of all the mails sent in a period of time. i.e. for example: say in last 1 hour.

thanks!!

Sure. Just save the response code/text of each mail being sent with its timestamp, and then you can report on it any way you want.
