Hi,
I am working on a JSP that insert all data from a form to a database when the submit button is clicked. The user need to get a password before entering the forms page.
The user send us a mail and the system have to automatically send a mail within a password.
My question is: How can i send automatic e-mail?
Any reference or information would be appreciated.
Thanks
Jeff

Jeff,
You should take a look at the JavaMail API which provides functionality for sending email in Java. If the web/appserver you are using doesn't include JavaMail support then there are a few simple classes out there that will send email as well. If this the case, email me at adam@chalkcreek.com and I will send you one that I like to use.

Jeff,
If you are going to use JavaMail API, you also need to download
Java Activatio Framework.
So you'll need mail.jar and activation.jar in your lib directory.

There is an excellant example of creating a taglib to utilize the JavaMail API from a JSP page in Adam's book.
