Of course you can. But you need java mail api. So check this http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/

and also there are lot of tutorials available in net.

I don't think struts will actually send an e-mail, but you can use it to capture the data you'll need like address, subject, and message.

Once you have all that then you can use JavaMail to send the e-mail.

Hi

Thanks for the reply.I have the java mail API.What i want is like some example application say which has form and when the user submits collects all data and then action class is called which in turn uses java mail API.Any sample application which puts together the entire thing using struts framework.

Kindly let me know any website which provides these examples or any other resource.Thanks.

Practically any Struts tutorial will show you how to handle forms with Struts. Combine the form-processing action from such a tutorial with a JavaMail tutorial and that's about it.
