This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
E-mail from my application directly goes to Junk e-mail. I am using Microsoft Outlook which is connected to Microsoft exchange. Dumb solution here is mark the first e-mail as Not Spam and then onwards it directly goes to Inbox.
That means that the server which receives the e-mail thinks it looks like spam. The solution, then, would be to try to make your e-mail look less like spam.
It's hard to say how you might do that when we don't know anything about how you're formatting or sending your e-mails. So all I can suggest at this point is that you should research how anti-spam products work and act accordingly.
String from = "email@example.com";
String to = "firstname.lastname@example.org";
// SUBSTITUTE YOUR ISP'S MAIL SERVER HERE!!!
String host = "your host ";
// Create properties, get Session
Properties props = new Properties();
// If using static Transport.send(),
// need to specify which host to send it to
// To see what is going on behind the scene
Session session = Session.getInstance(props);
// Instantiatee a message
Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);
Having an all-uppercase subject, using HTML, and repeating the words "online shopping" are all excellent ways to increase the likelihood of an email being classified as spam.

Thanks Rangana for your code. Sorry for being this late to respond. The problem was solved before itself. I did do minor modifications to my code. And now my e-mail goes direclty to inbox.
But can any body tell me, what all should I require to send e mail to person B from a Java program,
Answer I guess would be,
1. SMTP server name
2. User id & password of smtp server
3. Reciepient mail address
I am asking this question because I am still not sure what an SMTP server does. I know when I google about it there's a lot of theory involved with it. But can anybody tell
the process involved in it in three - four lines?
Three or four lines? Don't short-change yourself. If you're going to be sending e-mail then take some time to understand the process properly. One of the reasons that 90% of the messages sent by e-mail these days are spam is, there's way too many people who set up servers without understanding what they do.
