yes Gregg, please help me, I ve found the following code as a sample, becasue i new to this below is the code whihc i found, thank you but please help me out sir!!
Do we need any kind of server also.

import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import java.util.*;

public class SendMailUsingAuthentication{

private static final String SMTP_HOST_NAME = "";
private static final String SMTP_AUTH_USER = "myusername";
private static final String SMTP_AUTH_PWD = "mypwd";

private static final String emailMsgTxt = "Online Order + Confirmation Message. Also include the Tracking Number.";

private static final String emailSubjectTxt = "Order Confirmation + Subject";

private static final String emailFromAddress = "";

// Add List of Email address to who email needs to be sent to
private static final String[] emailList = {"", ""};

public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception
SendMailUsingAuthentication smtpMailSender = new SendMailUsingAuthentication();
smtpMailSender.postMail( emailList, emailSubjectTxt, emailMsgTxt, emailFromAddress);
System.out.println("Sucessfully Sent mail to All Users");

public void postMail( String recipients[ ], String subject,
String message , String from) throws MessagingException
boolean debug = false;

//Set the host smtp address
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("", SMTP_HOST_NAME);
props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

Authenticator auth = new SMTPAuthenticator();
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, auth);


// create a message
Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);

// set the from and to address
InternetAddress addressFrom = new InternetAddress(from);

InternetAddress[] addressTo = new InternetAddress[recipients.length];
for (int i = 0; i < recipients.length; i++)
addressTo[i] = new InternetAddress(recipients[i]);
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, addressTo);

// Setting the Subject and Content Type
msg.setContent(message, "text/plain");

* SimpleAuthenticator is used to do simple authentication
* when the SMTP server requires it.
private class SMTPAuthenticator extends javax.mail.Authenticator

public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication()
String username = SMTP_AUTH_USER;
String password = SMTP_AUTH_PWD;
return new PasswordAuthentication(username, password);
