Jakarta Mailer tags attachment problem

I have just downloaded the Jakarta Mailer-1.1 and installed on my PC. Following the documentation of, I tested the following code to send an email with attachment file :

<mt:mail server="EML" to=""
from="" subject="mail test">
<mt:message>test test attachemnt</mt:message>
<mt:attach file="portfoliodocs/ProdBrochure.pdf" />

The problem is that I received this email immediately but no attachment included. I tried different email address, still can not get the attachment, just the email.

The file path is relative to the root of web server (tomcat/webapps/apptest/portfoliodocs/...). I did not get any error message running this code. I am using Tomcat 4-1-30.

Any help is greatly apprciated.

I don't use the Jakarta Mailer tags so I don't think I can help you with your problem. But one correction: the mailer tags are a set of proprietary custom tags developed under the Jakarta project and are not a part of the standardized JSTL. I have edited your topic accordingly so as not to confuse anyone.
