There are a few too many unknowns at this point in time so maybe you can answer a few questions?
  • Connection refused could be because the email server that you are using did not like you trying to connect at that point in time. Are you 100% that the email server is working as correctly?
  • Are you sure that the account which you are using to connect to the mail server is a valid account?
  • Are you able to provide us with the code that is connecting to the email server?
  • Are you able to provide us with the code that is trying to send out the email message?

  • It can be helpful to the rest of us if you use the codetags (https://coderanch.com/wiki/659781/Code-Tags) and good indentation when posting code.
    It can be helpful to use the Preview button, which is just left of the Submit button to verify that your post looks proper and sound the way you want it to.
    I use the Preview button all of the time, which helps me cut down on mistakes.

    Hi Comal,
    as I'm a bit more into the whole topic about java and e-mail I can give you some input:

    It seems you're tryin to connect to the server directly instead of use java mail api. I recommend you to use it. It handles many things for you so you don't have to speak smtp to the target server directly.
    So I guess your code some looks some like this:


    Rather strange your Source is over 370 lines long but the very basics doesn't work.

    There're a couple of reasons the connection is refused:

    - You're tryin to directly connect to the target SMTP server - and maybe this connection gets refused cause the server only accepts connections from other "registered" SMTP servers but refuses connections from private IP ranges - simple spam protection.
    - If you're try to connect to a SMTP server of your mail provider - you maybe try to connect to the wrong port. A SMTP server usualy has following ports opened:
    TCP/25 - to receive mails from other SMTP servers - normaly plain unencrypted - but could also provide STARTTLS feature
    TCP/465 - to accept mail-submission from registered clients - secured by socket level TLS
    TCP/587 - same as above - but mostly used with STARTTLS command instead of socket level TLS

    Here's a sample:

    Obviously you need java mail api in your classpath to compile and run.
    Try to get my sample working - and post stacktraces if you encounter exceptions so we can narrow down the problem.

    Hope it helps in any way.

    Matt

    Hi
    Thanks.However
    I shall try to use the code  as suggested .
    But very importantly the input should be via stream data
    for easy functioning that i have shown below.please suggest alter native if socket usage may be cause for error like  connection
    refusal erc

    Well, I wouldn't try to implement raw smtp by myself - use java mail lib instead.
    Did you tried to telnet localhost:25 ?
    This might work on a linux machine as usual there should be a mail deamon runnung - but on windows you have to setup a mail server first as windows doesn't have any MTA pre-installed.
    Anyway: we still need some more information to help you.

    Sorry, but your posts some get more and more away from your initial question I don't know what you're try to say or ask anymore.
    I've replied to your question why you get a connection reset with a few guesses and ask you to provide us some more information. But unfortunatly your last two posts doesn't help as they don't seem to relate to your initial problem.
    If you're still asking for some help please try to re-order your question and additional code so we can follow up again.

    Hi
      In fact I tried three programs in  java  to forwatd a sample meesaege. but none of them gave fruitful result. inlieu
      of the follwing points
     
      !)MailMessage that was having connection problem and complicated with lmore line of code
       2)ServerFrame.java -->that was a j-chat. software in GUI environment,acknowledging  Datagram Service
        requiring different systems of network
      3)Send Mail.java  the  third one supposed to be easy but hardly this also had problem
     
      Since you seem to inform about your  rich comprehension about this topic,
     
      i  did show  all of these to get any one  prg cleared atlleast Also i am not well versed in certian nomenclature used in prgs
      So please help me if  you can make  the follwing prg  error free
      Hope this suffices for a favourable  solution
      Thanks
