Does Yahoo allow you to send directly to it's smtp server?
I thought you could only access that from their web interface.

Am pretty sure it does allow it, because i'm following an example program from a book. But my program doesn't work for some reason.

Does anyone have any other ideas of how I can efficienty send emails from tomcat?

You might want to test that SMTP server to make sure that it's still up and accepting requests.
You can do that with any mail client, such as Mozilla, Eurodoa, Thunderbird, etc....

A quick glance at your code doesn't reveal any problems.

NOTE: You may want to look into the JNDI mail features of Tomcat.

The JavaMail section is about half way down the page.

Moving to other Java APIs since this really isn't a JSP issue.
