DISCLAIMER: I haven't actually tried this, so my answer could be totally wrong! I don't think that javax.mail.* is part of the standard J2SE 1.4 distribution, so this error probably means that you don't have the right classes in your classpath. The easiest way to remedy this is to go to the Java Mail homepage and download the API implementation (~2.2Mb). Once you have this, you will find inside about 4 or 5 jar files. The easiest way to get these into your classpath is to copy them into the "JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext" directory. "JAVA_HOME" is wherever you installed Java on your particular platform. Of course, this is a rather brute forece soltion, and of course there is more to this API than those few jar's, but this should get you started. PCS UPDATE: In reading the homepage info, I see that you will also need the JavaBeans Activation Framework. It is probably installed in much the saem way I describe above.

"ABCD EFGH", The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp. We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please edit your profile and select a new name which meets the requirements. Please change your display name soon! Invalid accounts get deleted, and I think yours would be deleted sooner rather than later... Thanks. Dave
