You don't say what, if any, the problem is but 14 parameters to a static method is just silly. This needs to be OO implemented as a class with a constructor accepting the first 4 parameters and then methods for everything else.

Paul Okeke, you are on the wrong track. (Not to mention that you should have started your own thread to ask your question instead of hijacking this one.) JAMES is an SMTP server. It has nothing to do with JavaMail, which is an SMTP client. You're better off trying to connect JavaMail with an existing SMTP server, one which a competent professional has already set up. It isn't hard to use Gmail's server, for example. But don't waste your time trying to set up your own server when you know almost nothing about how e-mail works.

pavan, welcome to JavaRanch.

Please UseCodeTags when you post source code, so that the code is easier to read.

Also, please explain what your question or problem is.
