I want to design my servlet to work as follows: 1)The user key in some value in browser 2)The servlet uses the keyed value to get data from database and then formats a PDF file (in memory) 3)The servlet sends this PDF to a number of people (e-mail address pre-stored) 4)In the meantime, the servlet notifies the browser user. How do I do the third step: e-mail a file (in memory) to somebody? Thanks. Bruce

This is really a pretty big question, and I'll answer it by pointing you in the right direction: Javamail. Read up on it, because sending mail from a servlet involves setting up an SMTP server among other things, but there is of course tons of information available on how to do it.

Thanks Dave. I am reading JavaMail. Just wondering if anybody knows some utilities that will do then trick. Bruce
