I have used a mail bean the code of which is given below

import java.*;
import java.util.Date;

public class mailbean {

public void send (String to, String from, String sub, String mes) {
Date dt = new Date();
SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(" ");
PrintStream message = client.startMessage();

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. You may use initials for the first name but not the last.

You can change it here
