SMTP Mail Configuration

I am usign Liferay6 and I have my custom portlet which sends an email. I am using JavaMailSender to send an email. I want to configure mailSender properties like smtp host, smtp port from Liferay's mail configuration. In liferay6 you can configure the SMTP server by going to Control Panel -> Server Administration -> Mail. I want to read these properties for my custom portlet and configure mailSender in my portlet. I tried configuring as mentioned below but didn't work.


I always get default values for below mentioned property even if I change it to something else through Liferay's control panel. My question is how can I get the values of outgoing smtp host & port which is configured through Liferay's mail configuration. = localhost
mail.session.mail.smtp.port 25

if you put those values in the then you'll be able to read your updated values.
You do have a file, don't you?
I agree. Here's the link:
