I'm trying to send fatal messages to my email and I keep getting the error below:

I take it the system requires authentication. What line should I add to the log4j.properties in order to solve it?

my log4j.properties looks like this:

log4j.appender.MAIL=org.apache.log4j.net.SMTPAppender
log4j.appender.MAIL.Threshold=FATAL
log4j.appender.MAIL.BufferSize=10
log4j.appender.MAIL.From=info@syntac.com
log4j.appender.MAIL.SMTPHost=outgoing.verizon.net
log4j.appender.MAIL.Subject=Log4J Message
log4j.appender.MAIL.To=info@syntac.com

log4j.appender.MAIL.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.MAIL.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r [%t] %-5p %c %x - %m%n



the ERROR:



log4j:ERROR Error occured while sending e-mail notification.

The SMTPAppender doesn't support authentication. You can tell that by looking at its API documentation and noticing that there aren't any "setXXX" methods related to authentication.

You could write your own subclass that does support authentication. Or you could do what it looks like the authors intended and use a local server. I find it hard to imagine an application that must e-mail error notifications but isn't running in an environment that doesn't have its own SMTP server.
