Hello!
We want to send an email from a jsp to the Recipient (variable: youradress) from the emailadress given in our profile (variable: myadress).

There appears a error message at the command Transport.send(message).

<%@ page language="java"
import="java.util.*, javax.mail.*, javax.mail.internet.*"
%>
<%@ page language="java" import="model.User" %>
<%
model.User user = db.DBMUser.getUserById(session.getAttribute("user").toString());
String mymail = user.getEmail();
String mailadresse = request.getParameter("mailadresse");
String nachricht = request.getParameter("nachricht");

InternetAddress myadress = new InternetAddress(mymail);
InternetAddress youradress = new InternetAddress(mailadresse);

try{
   Properties prop=new Properties();
   prop.put("mail.smtp.host","mail.gmx.net");
   Session s = Session.getDefaultInstance(prop);
   //MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(s);
Message message = new MimeMessage(s);

   message.setFrom(myadress);
   message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO,youradress);
   message.setSubject("Einladung");
   message.setText(nachricht);
   message.setContent(message, "text/plain");
   Transport.send(message);

   out.println("Ihre E-Mail wurde erfolgreich versandt.");
}
catch(MessagingException msgexcep) {
   out.println(msgexcep.getMessage());
}
%>

error message in the browser:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: An exception occurred processing JSP page /send.jsp at line 34


31: message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO,youradress);
32: message.setSubject("Einladung zur Heimwehplattform");
33: message.setText(nachricht);
34: Transport.send(message);
35:
36: out.println("Ihre E-Mail wurde erfolgreich versandt.");
37: }

Look at the web applications logs for a stacktrace and a better exception message.

You should not be using scriptlets, however. Write a Bean.

Here the stacktrace:

says it all, that class isn't there.
Now, don't ask me where it is, but it's not where it's supposed to be.

I'm getting little rusty on web development with Java, however error is clear class not found. Are you sure you set SSL properly? Here is how to for Tomcat 6 (same can be found for lower versions)
