I have created a folder called IOEmail in C:\ and made proper
changes in server.xml. and I put my compiled .class (BasicServlet.class) file in IOEmail\Web-inf\Classes in order for my .class file to be called through browser. But whenever I give URL like "http://localhost:8080/IOEmail/BasicServlet" ,it is
not working, but if I URL like
"http://localhost:8080/IOEmail/servlet/BasicServlet" , it is
working and I don't know why???
Could anybody help me to solve this problem?

Sounds like you forgot to make/modify web.xml for your web application. See the Tomcat example application web.xml file.
