Send Java Email using Spring With Gmail SMTP Server Settings – JavaMailSenderImpl Mail

Spring » on Nov 25, 2012 { 8 Comments } By Sivateja

Let us see how to send java E-mail using Spring Framework,  sending E-mail using java is little hassle, we will always get class path or SMTP issues. But Spring providing this powerful class called, org.springframework.mail.javamail.JavaMailSenderImpl having 5 main properties, of which host, port, username, password,javaMailProperties.

Files Required

  • spconfig.xml

Jars Required

  • activation.jar
  • classes12.jar
  • commons-email-1.0.jar
  • mail.jar

package java4s;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.xml.XmlBeanFactory;

public class ClientLogic {

	public static void main(String[] args)
		Resource res = new ClassPathResource("spconfig.xml");
		BeanFactory factory = new XmlBeanFactory(res);

		Object o = factory.getBean("id2");
		MailLogic ml = (MailLogic)o;

		ml.sendM("Enter from email id","Enter to email id","MySubject","This is body");



package java4s;

import org.springframework.mail.MailSender;
import org.springframework.mail.SimpleMailMessage;

public class MailLogic {

	   private MailSender mail;

	   public void setMail(MailSender mail)
		   this.mail = mail;

	   public void sendM(String from, String to, String subject, String msg) 

			SimpleMailMessage message = new SimpleMailMessage();


			System.out.println("Mail Sent Successfully...!");





 <bean id="id1" class="org.springframework.mail.javamail.JavaMailSenderImpl">
     <property name="host" value="" />
     <property name="port" value="465" />
     <property name="username" value="From Gmail email id" />
     <property name="password" value="and it password" />

     <property name="javaMailProperties">
         <prop key="mail.smtp.auth">true</prop>
         <prop key="mail.smtp.socketFactory.class"></prop>
         <prop key="mail.smtp.socketFactory.port">465</prop>
         <prop key="mail.debug">true</prop>
         <prop key="mail.smtp.starttls.enable">true</prop>

<bean id="id2" class="java4s.MailLogic">
<property name="mail" ref="id1" />




Execution Flow

  • is our main class, and we are calling id2 [line number 15]
  • So come to spconfig.xml and check line number 23,  we are calling having property mail of type MailSender Interface (provided by spring), so it will moves to JavaMailSenderImpl (id1, implemented class of MailSender) and there we have given all the Email related credentials
  • MailSender contains mail() method to send a mail
  • MailSender’s mail() method contains SimpleMailMessage object as parameter, like mail(SimpleMailMessage Object)
  • Finally we set From,To,Subject,Msg and called send() that’s it

How simple its is ? 🙂
