How to send email with no attachment?

MimeBodyPart textPart = new MimeBodyPart();
textPart.setText(text);

I've written a email servlet using Java Mail that allows file attachment.
The problem that I'm having is that every time I send an email without a attach file. The email does not sends out.
Please advise! Alvin
Here's my code looks like:
======================================
Multipart mp = new MimeMultipart();

MimeBodyPart attachFilePart = new MimeBodyPart();

FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(attachment);
attachFilePart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
attachFilePart.setFileName(fds.getName());

mp.addBodyPart(textPart);
mp.addBodyPart(attachFilePart);
message.setContent(mp);
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
