J2SE E-mail

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could inform me about sending e-mail with Java SE. I'm really not sure what class handles this, or even if there is one for it. All I really want to do is have my Java SE application send e-mails to alert users. Everything I found through Googling regarding e-mails was J2EE.

All I really need is direction on where to look, but an example would be great too.

The JavaMail allows one to access a mail server when using J2SE or J2EE. It's of little help if no mail server is available. That's when you need Aspirin - as embeddable email server. It's perfect if you just need to send email (and not receive it), since it doesn't rely on an external email server being available.

Thanks Ulf,

Aspirin and Java Mail sound like just what I need. I've downloaded both and will try incorporating them into my App when I get a chance. It one of those "You can work on this project in your spare time" applications. As if Engineers ever have "spare time"....

Thanks for the replies,
