i am having problem with sending mails with attachment and message....

i'm able to send mail with message and no attachment and also with attachment and no message...but not both at the same time...

here's the code...

import java.util.Properties;

import javax.mail.Session;
import javax.mail.Message;
import javax.mail.BodyPart;
import javax.mail.MessagingException;
import javax.mail.Multipart;
import javax.mail.Transport;
import javax.mail.internet.AddressException;
import javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeBodyPart;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart;
import javax.activation.DataHandler;
import javax.activation.DataSource;
import javax.activation.FileDataSource;

public class EmailNotification {

public EmailNotification() {


public static void sendMail(String to,String from, String subject, String message, String attachmentFileName){
Properties props = new Properties();

String host = "<host name>";


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

Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);

try {
msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));

InternetAddress[] address =null ;
msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);

BodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();


DataSource source = new FileDataSource(attachmentFileName);
messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(source));
String fileApper = attachmentFileName.substring(attachmentFileName.lastIndexOf("\\")+1);


catch(AddressException ae){

catch(MessagingException me) {

If you downloaded JavaMail then you have a "demo" directory that contains example code. You will find an example of what you want to do in that directory, I think. You need separate parts for your body text and each of your attachments.
