hi all,
i need help for coding for attachments in JSP
i had tried the following code
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
@ page import=""
@ page import="java.util.Properties"
@ page import="java.util.Date"
@ page import="javax.mail.*"
@ page import="javax.mail.internet.*"
@ page import="javax.servlet.*"
@ page import="javax.servlet.http.*"
@ page import="javax.activation.*"
@ page import="*"
@ page import="*"
String to="";
String subject="Hi";
String matter="India is great";
String from="";
String file="c:/sendmail.txt";
String host="";
Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("", host);
props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");
boolean sessionDebug=false;
Session mailSession=Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(mailSession);
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
message.setRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(to));
MimeMultipart mp = new MimeMultipart();
MimeBodyPart mbp1= new MimeBodyPart();
mbp1.setText(matter); // Type your Text Message Here
MimeBodyPart mbp2 = new MimeBodyPart();
FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(file);
mbp2.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
mp.addBodyPart(mbp1); // mail body of the message
mp.addBodyPart(mbp2); // Add your attachments here
message.setSentDate(new Date());
catch(Exception e){}
When i execute this code I am getting FileNotFoundException because of it is not taking Attach file. And at that c:\sendmail.txt exists in my system and the code is working properly when i dont include attachment part . I am not able to find out where the problem is so pls guide me where is the error in my code .
Expecting ur reply at the earliest

I think there is nothing wrong in the code.I tested it with Lotus
Server and the mail was delivered with the attachment.My guess is, something wrong with the mail server
