import java.awt.Button;
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Graphics;
import java.awt.Menu;
import java.awt.MenuBar;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;

public class MyApplet extends Applet implements ActionListener{

private Button Send;

You have not registered the buttons as the event source with the Applet.
Just curious. Why are you using Applet instead of JApplet?
