Solution 1

There is a lot of information here[^]. without seeing your code, I can't help further, however I would check you have set the FROM address on the message; that's the local e-mail address.

Solution 2

Your email is set up false, the from address is not right. Therefore the message cannot be send. there must be some address - not a valid one, but there must be some.

Please refer to these documentations:

Fundamentals on the JavaMail API[^] (PDF)

Email through Java[^] (website)

All about JavaMail[^] (

All 3 of them have good tutorial style explanation on how to create a valid email.

Please also do NOT use a web email account for testing. Those will block/ban you after a few attempts.
It's much better o use a local email server on your development system. Please refer to the free HMailServer[^], which is simple to operate and great for developing message handling systems. be aware that also this one has a auto-ban option - you can switch it off in the preferences.
