hi all,
i need help for coding for attachments in JSP
i had tried the following code
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
@ page import=""
@ page import="java.util.Properties"
@ page import="java.util.Date"
@ page import="javax.mail.*"
@ page import="javax.mail.internet.*"
@ page import="javax.servlet.*"
@ page import="javax.servlet.http.*"
@ page import="javax.activation.*"
@ page import="*"
@ page import="*"
String to="";
String subject="Hi";
String matter="India is great";
String from="";
String file="c:/sendmail.txt";
String host="";
Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("", host);
props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");
boolean sessionDebug=false;
Session mailSession=Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(mailSession);
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
message.setRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(to));
MimeMultipart mp = new MimeMultipart();
MimeBodyPart mbp1= new MimeBodyPart();
mbp1.setText(matter); // Type your Text Message Here
MimeBodyPart mbp2 = new MimeBodyPart();
FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(file);
mbp2.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
mp.addBodyPart(mbp1); // mail body of the message
mp.addBodyPart(mbp2); // Add your attachments here
message.setSentDate(new Date());
catch(Exception e){}
When i execute this code I am getting FileNotFoundException because of it is not taking Attach file. And at that c:\sendmail.txt exists in my system and the code is working properly when i dont include attachment part . I am not able to find out where the problem is so pls guide me where is the error in my code .
Expecting ur reply at the earliest

I think there is nothing wrong in the code.I tested it with Lotus
Server and the mail was delivered with the attachment.My guess is, something wrong with the mail server

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
I agree. Here's the link:
