Hi All, I have been trying to send an E-Mail through an applet for quite sometime now but haven't been quite successful. I have downloaded and tested quite a bit of code but none of them have worked successfully. I have been getting an "Unable to connect to host exception". Using the same code as an application however, the mail is sent successfully. Where am i going wrong? What is the solution? I am working on an urgent project, any solution at the earliest would be highly appreciated.
Thanks is advance
regards
vijayan.

Hi,
An applet can never connect to a machine other than from which it is loaded.So in your case while sending the mail, it tres to connect to the mail host, and gives the exception. I suggest you to send the request to servlet through your appplet and your servlet should send the email to the mail host.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
