Java Question

Java mail has connection errors

I'm trying to send an email using my java application, but it always gives me a connection error back. So my code looks like this:

import java.util.*;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activation.*;

public class SendMail {

public static void main(String [] args) {

String to = "something@gmail.com";
String from = "fromsomeone@gmail.com";
String host = "localhost";

Properties properties = System.getProperties();
properties.setProperty("mail.user", "fromsomeone");
properties.setProperty("mail.password", "passwordForSomeone");
properties.setProperty("mail.smtp.host", host);

Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(properties);


try {

MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(session);
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(to));
message.setSubject("subject typed");
message.setText("This is actual message which is just some lines");
Transport.send(message);

}catch (MessagingException mex) {
mex.printStackTrace();
}
}
}


of course I provide valid information (using my gmail account). And this is the error I get back:

com.sun.mail.util.MailConnectException: Couldn't connect to host, port: localhost, 25; timeout -1;
nested exception is:

Can someone help me, what is wrong with my code? Thank you!

Answer

This will be help you to send mail via gmail account;

public class MailMan {
Session session = null;

public MailMan() {
    if (session == null) {
        init();
    }
}

public void init() {

    Properties props = new Properties();
    props.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.gmail.com");
    props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.port", "465");
    props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.class", "javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory");
    props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");
    props.put("mail.smtp.port", "465");

    session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, new javax.mail.Authenticator() {
        protected PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
            return new PasswordAuthentication("EMAIL", "PASSWORD");
        }
    });
    if (session != null) {
        System.out.println("[OK]");
    } else {
        System.out.println("[NOK]");
    }
}

public void sendMail() {
    if (session == null) {
        System.exit(0);
    }
    try {
        String messageText = "";
        Message message = new MimeMessage(session);
        try {
            message.setFrom(new InternetAddress("no-reply", "No Reply"));
        } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        message.setReplyTo(InternetAddress.parse("no-reply"));


        message.addRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, InternetAddress.parse("to_email")); 
        message.setSubject("TEST");
        message.setText(messageText);

        Transport.send(message);

        System.out.println("[OK]");

    } catch (MessagingException e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
        System.out.println("Not Sent...");
    }
 }
}

And the main class;

public class SendMail {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    MailMan ma = new MailMan();
    ma.sendMail();

  }
}

After all you should turn on your "Access for less secure apps".
