Hi all, i am currently working with java mail client problem is i want to store port number to which mail client will connect,what are steps needed for this,should i use System.getProperties() method.but actually this method is not working,because it doesn't specify explicitly the port number... also.i want to save name and password in database and aother information,so which driver i should use,is it fine if i use Type3 driver....
one more thing i am using javamail api-1.4,so using this can i fetch the information about client as well as server...
help me out guys...
thanks in advance.....

I don't quite understand what you're trying to do. If you want to store JavaMail connection parameters in a database you have to decide which parameters those are. In all likelihood the mail host, the account (i.e. email address) and password. If you're using a non-standard port you;d need to store that too (although I'm not even sure how to tell JavaMail to use such a port). All these data items can be easily stored in a database, retrieved, and then used in a Properties for initializing the email Session.

The type of driver being used for the database is irrelevant in the overall scheme of things.

Does this answer the question?
