Spring Send Email With Attachment Using Gmail SMTP – Example

Spring » on Dec 11, 2012 { 12 Comments } By Sivateja

We know how to send a plane spring E-mail i mean without any attachments, Let us see how to send spring E-mail with attachment which is a similar application just like plane one, but with little modifications in, will show you how..

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","Spring Mail Using Google SMTP","This Is Body With Attachment");



package java4s;

import javax.mail.MessagingException;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;

import org.springframework.mail.MailParseException;
import org.springframework.mail.javamail.JavaMailSender;
import org.springframework.mail.javamail.MimeMessageHelper;

public class MailLogic {

       private JavaMailSender mail;

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

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

            MimeMessage Mimemessage = mail.createMimeMessage();

            MimeMessageHelper message = new MimeMessageHelper(Mimemessage, true);

            //message.setText("My alternative text", true);
            //message.addBcc("BCC email");
            //message.addCc("CC email");

            FileSystemResource file = new FileSystemResource("E:\\");
            message.addAttachment(file.getFilename(), file);


           }catch (MessagingException e) {
                throw new MailParseException(e);

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





 <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 JavaMailSender Interface (provided by spring), so it will moves to JavaMailSenderImpl (id1, implemented class of JavaMailSender) and there we have given all the Email related credentials
  • JavaMailSender contains mail() method to send a mail
  • JavaMailSender‘s mail() method contains MimeMessage class object as parameter, like mail(MimeMessage Object)
  • Finally we set From,To,Subject,Msg and called send() that’s it

How simple its is ? 🙂
