Which API are you using - JavaMail? If so, then the (Mime)Message class has methods for setting this. If you're using some other API then you need to tell us the details about that.

Yes JavaMail...

Do i have to change any thing in the smtp server or any thing in server like .properties file or any EAR file ?

After reading my previous post, what do you think you have to change?

I think in the Java code where FROM address is set.

But after doing that what other things needs to be done ? Any thing needs to be changed in smtp settings or server settings ?? I am new to this i actually don't know...

Why do you think something else needs to be changed? What happened after you made this initial change?

Are you asking why the altered code wasn't executed until you restarted the application?
