Looks like you are trying to send a message with an invalid address. As Tom Bough writes - you could post your code, and perhaps someone can spot why.

I am a newbie having problems with javax.mail as well. Am developing on WinXpsp2 machine with j2sdk1.4.2_04. Anyway, I am trying to write a simple mail program using the following example code:

------------------------------------------------------------
import java.util.Properties;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activation.*;


public class HelloMail {
public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
String host="your.host.here"; //your smtp host
String from="from@address.here"; //sender's email
String to ="to@address.here" ; //receiver's email

Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("mail.smtp.host", host);

Session session=Session.getInstance(props,null);

MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(session);
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(to));
message.setSubject(" My Test email ");
message.setText(" Here is the content ");
Transport transport = session.getTransport("smtp");
transport.connect(host,"uname","pswd");
transport.send(message);
}
}
------------------------------------------
Here is the ant script I am using to compile:

-------------------------------------------
<project name="Generic Webapp" default="compile" basedir=".">
<target name="compile" description="Compile Java sources" >
<javac
srcdir="src"
destdir="bin"
debug="false"
deprecation="off"
classpath=".;./src;./lib/mail.jar;./lib/activation.jar;./bin;"
/>
</target>
</project>
-------------------------------------------

Everything compiles fine. However, when I go to run it I get the following message : "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/mail/Address". I have been to every BB and devel site and have tried many different things and nothing seems to work.

Does anyone have a suggestion? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Looks like your classpath is wrong, and the classloader can't find mail.jar. Try running Ant with the -verbose flag, this will show you where Javac is trying to load specific jars from.

The location of the .jar files is as specified in the ant file. Is this incorrect?

AAAArgh!! I solved the problem. I discovered that if I use the -classpath option when I run the script ($ java -classpath ".;./src;../lib/mail.jar;../lib/activation.jar;" HelloMail) it runs correctly. So maybe that is what you were referring to. I was under the assumption that somehow when you compiled into a class that the location of the .jar files were magically associated. Guess it's true what they say about assuming...... Anyway, thanks for the help!!!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
