Hi everybody!
I'm having some troubles with sending an e-mail from a servlet I have running on Tomcat 3.3 and Solaris.
The servlet uses Java Mail API to send an e-mail, but when I press the button to send the e-mail this error appear on console and the mail is not sended:
javax.mail.NoSuchProviderException: No provider for Address type: rfc822

Could you tell me why does this message appear? and How can I fix it?
Thank you in advance!!
Nancy.

This usually means that you do not have the SMTP provider in the classpath.

One thing to check is that you have the latest mail.jar and activation.jar

Thank you Mike,
But since I tried to send the mail at first, I had already added the activation.jar, mail.jar and pop3.jar in the classpath of the .profile file, so I don't know why I can't send the mail if I have all this libraries...

Could you help me?
Thanks again.
Nancy.

Place those jar files in your /usr/local/tomcat/lib directory and see if it helps. (It might not be /usr/local/, but I'm sure you get the idea.

If you are using *your* (you, a user) profile and compiling, running under that profile, maybe Tomcat is running as root (or hopefully some other user). So place the jars where Tomcat can always find them.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
