function schedule()

function draft()
function send()
<title>E-Mail Scheduler</title>
<body style="margin:10" onload="SetFocus()">
<form name="f1">
<h1><center>COMPOSE MAIL</center></h1>
<table cellpadding=5 cellspacing=2 align="center">
<td><input type=text name="to" size=76></td>
<td><input type=text name="cc" size=76></td>
<td><input type=text name="bcc" size=76></td>
<td><input type=text name="sub" size=76></td>

<table cellpadding=5 cellspacing=2 align="center">

String body=request.getParameter("body");
String from="";
String host="";
Properties props = new Properties();
// If using static Transport.send(),
// need to specify which host to send it to
props.put("", host);
//set the authentication
//enable SSL connection
//STARTTLS is the ESMTP keyword used to initiate a secure SMTP connection between
// two servers using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) (also known as TLS).
Session ses = Session.getInstance(props);
try {
// Instantiatee a message
MimeMessage msg = new MimeMessage(ses);
//Set message attributes
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
InternetAddress[] address = {new InternetAddress(to)};
InternetAddress[] address1 = {new InternetAddress(cc)};
InternetAddress[] address2 = {new InternetAddress(bcc)};
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.CC, address1);
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.BCC, address2);
msg.setSentDate(new Date());
// Set message content
//Send the message

Transport tr=ses.getTransport("smtp");

out.println("hi mail sending is under process<br>");
out.println("Message has been sent sucessfully");
catch (Exception mex) {
// Prints all nested (chained) exceptions as well

In the future, please UseCodeTags when posting code of any length. It's unnecessarily hard to read as it is, making it less likely that people will do so.

One thing that jumps out is that the code doesn't handle authentication (which Google Mail requires).

Also, it's considered bad design to do stuff like this in a JSP; use a backing bean or a servlet instead.
I agree. Here's the link:
