I got some errors by using import:

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

I think that I need to get the java mail APIs to my IDE. I did some research and found that I need to download mail.jar and activation.jar to use the mail api.

The only files I could find are, and are these the right ones to download?

after I downloaded these files, I included them in my classpath, but I still got the same errors as before. what is the correct way to do this?

Thank you!

You'll know if they are the right ones to download (after you downloaded them) by looking inside them. If they contain mail.jar and activation.jar (and maybe a bunch of other things) then they were the right ones. Of course you'll have to extract the jar files from them and put them somewhere in your file system. Then adjust your classpath to include those jar files. You do know how to work with zip files, right? Or do you need a quick explanation of those?
