I have configured the Default SMTP Virtual Server from my Administrative tools.
Which resulted as the with IP address ans i have given a port number as 25.
And the default IP address i can see is All Unassigned.
Authentication shows that Granted . like Access --> Relay --> granted for my IP.

But when i run my belo application, it gives me the following error.

Code :

import java.util.*;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activation.*;
public class SimpleSendEmail {
public static void main(String[] args) {

String host = "smtp.gmail.com";
//please suggest , What would be the Host name
String to = "v4shiva@gmail.com";
String from = "shiva2agni@gmail.com";
String subject = "My First Email";
String messageText = "I am sending a message using the"
+ " JavaMail API.\n"
+ "Here type your message.";
boolean sessionDebug = false;
Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("mail.host", host);
props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
try {
Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
InternetAddress[] address = {new InternetAddress(to)};
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);
msg.setSentDate(new Date());
catch (MessagingException mex) {

Error :
com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPSendFailedException: 530-5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at

Hi Shiva,

Google (and today probably any mail provider) doesn't allow you to use their SMTP server for sending mails without authenticating first. And that's what the error message tells you!

Have a look at this example on how to use authentication and GMail.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools

It's not a secret anymore!
