Hi There again ,
we have a problem in displaying an image on other Email Account
when we send an email with an image from our own Email Application ,
Email Body opens successfully but image is not being displayed.

The class of Email which we have written for sending Email is written below;

//---------------start of class-------

package HandlerBeans.Email;

import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.Session;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import java.util.*;
import javax.activation.*;

public class EmailHandler
public EmailHandler() { }//constructor

// public static boolean sendEmail(String from,String to,String subject,String

body,String FilePath)

public boolean sendEmail(String from,String to,String subject,String body,String

boolean debug= false;
String host = "";
String filename = FilePath;
String msgText1 = body ;
// create some properties and get the default Session
Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("", host);
Session session1 = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
try {
// create a message
MimeMessage msg = new MimeMessage(session1);
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
InternetAddress[] address = InternetAddress.parse(to);
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);
// create and fill the first message part
MimeBodyPart mbp1 = new MimeBodyPart();
// create the Multipart and its parts to it
Multipart mp = new MimeMultipart();
String fname = filename;
MimeBodyPart mbp2 = new MimeBodyPart();
// attach the file to the message
FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(fname);
mbp2.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
// add the Multipart to the message

// set the Date: header
msg.setSentDate(new java.util.Date());

// send the message

catch (MessagingException mex) {

Exception ex = null;
if ((ex = mex.getNextException()) != null)
return false;

return true;


// ---------------------- end of class -------------------

JSP code is written below
where we are calling the method
sendEmail(String from,String to,String subject,String body,String FilePath) for

sending Email

//--------------- JSP Code start--------------------

<%@ page language="java" import="com.jspsmart.upload.*"%>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*,java.util.*,*"%>

<jsp:useBean id="emailhandlerBean" scope="page"



String from="";
String to="";
String subject="Qurey About Email Image";

String body= "'<html><head></head><body><table>
<tr><td><strong> From LoneStarASp.Inc </strong ></tr></td></table>
<img src= > </body></html>'" ;

String FilePath=null; //it means no file is attached

// email is going to send here

emailhandlerBean.sendEmail( from , to , subject , body , FilePath) ;


//-------------------- jsp code end --------------

Can someone pleaseeeee tell us what are we doing wrong here, we would be very gratefull.

Thanks a million.

Round these parts, posting the same question in multiple forums is bad practice. It can make it rather difficult to follow a conversation, plus folks spend time saying things that were just said.

Please continue in the duplicate in the Other Java APIs forum.
