Hi I am trying to send an email with attachment using html and coding is working properly when I use that in my local machine but when I upload the code on the tomcat web server it is returning error saying that messaging exception and file not found exception.Please help anybody help me out and let me know what could be the is the code I am using for sending the attachment.

<%@page import="java.util.*"%>
<%@page import="javax.mail.*"%>
<%@page import="javax.mail.internet.*,*,java.util.*,javax.mail.*,javax.activation.*"%>

String to = request.getParameter("to");
System.out.println("the recipient address is:"+to);
String from = request.getParameter("from");
String sub = request.getParameter("subject");
String msg = request.getParameter("message");
String Attachment = request.getParameter("filename");
System.out.println("This is the file name"+Attachment);
System.out.println("this is from send mail:"+to + from + sub +msg);
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("", "smtpgateway");

Session s = Session.getInstance(props, null);
MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(s);
StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(to, ",");
int tokenCount = st.countTokens();
System.out.println("no.of receipients:"+tokenCount);
InternetAddress [] recipientList = new InternetAddress[tokenCount];
for (int i = 0; st.hasMoreTokens(); i++)
String msgTo = st.nextToken();
System.out.println("the recipients address is:"+msgTo);
recipientList[i]= new InternetAddress(msgTo);
message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO,new InternetAddress(msgTo));
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
if(Attachment !="")
System.out.println("entered in to the if");
Multipart mp = new MimeMultipart();
MimeBodyPart mbp = new MimeBodyPart();
FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(Attachment);
mbp.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
// Add the Multipart to the message
// Set the Date: header
message.setSentDate(new Date());

"anna anna", please check your private messages about an important administrative matter.

As for your question:

That isn't the right way to see if the contents of two Strings are the same. Do this instead:

Also, this variable does contain the name of a file on your server, doesn't it? Because if the user enters the name of a file on their computer, you won't be able to send that file from your server code. You don't have access to the user's computer.
