Have you explicitly set these values like this when you posted the code here or are you actually using these values?? The error says that your username, password is not correct...

This is where the @Override annotation comes in very handy. Why don't you add that to the getPasswordAuthentication method and recompile?

i have added @override annotation to the method


but it is throwing a compiler error



The method getPasswordAuthentication(String, String) of type SendMailExchange.SMTPAuthenticator
must override or implement a supertype method

That tells you that the method which you thought was overriding some other method does not, in fact, do that. Now: how do you find out what the method should look like instead, so that it *does* override some other method?

That's exactly what Ulf meant - you have not overridden the method but overloaded it instead. Check the correct signature in the Javadocs: javax.mail.Authenticator
