Hi All,

I am trying to configure SMTPAppender properties of Log4j to send email through my MS outlook client.
I am able to send the mails for exceptions through Gmail account. But dont know about outlook configuration properties.

Somebody Please guide me in this.

Outlook is an email client; you can't use SMTP to access it. Are you trying to use an Exchange server, maybe? If so, is it configured to allow SMTP connections from clients?

I dont think so that I can access exchange server , as I am working in a organization and they might have firewalls to prevent access.

That's something you need to work through with your sys admin. But regardless, Outlook is the client and Exchange is the server. And SMTPAppender uses JavaMail to access a server.

You (presumably!) access the Exchange server all day long - unless they're using something other that Exchange to handle the corporate email.

Your log should be sent to the mailserver, whose address can be provided by one of your local network support people, along with any userid/password you might optionally need. The "To" address of that mail would be the email address of the log's recipent. The app being logged thus sends the log to the mailserver, and the recipient uses MS Outlook (or some other mail Client) to retrieve the log email from the mailserver just like they would any other email.
