Class SMTPMessage

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    MimePart, Part

    public class SMTPMessage
    extends MimeMessage
    This class is a specialization of the MimeMessage class that allows you to specify various SMTP options and parameters that will be used when this message is sent over SMTP. Simply use this class instead of MimeMessage and set SMTP options using the methods on this class.

    See the com.sun.mail.smtp package documentation for further information on the SMTP protocol provider.

    • Constructor Detail

      • SMTPMessage

        public SMTPMessage​(Session session)
        Default constructor. An empty message object is created. The headers field is set to an empty InternetHeaders object. The flags field is set to an empty Flags object. The modified flag is set to true.
        session - the Session
      • SMTPMessage

        public SMTPMessage​(Session session,
                    throws MessagingException
        Constructs an SMTPMessage by reading and parsing the data from the specified MIME InputStream. The InputStream will be left positioned at the end of the data for the message. Note that the input stream parse is done within this constructor itself.
        session - Session object for this message
        is - the message input stream
        MessagingException - for failures
      • SMTPMessage

        public SMTPMessage​(MimeMessage source)
                    throws MessagingException
        Constructs a new SMTPMessage with content initialized from the source MimeMessage. The new message is independent of the original.

        Note: The current implementation is rather inefficient, copying the data more times than strictly necessary.

        source - the message to copy content from
        MessagingException - for failures

        public void setEnvelopeFrom​(java.lang.String from)
        Set the From address to appear in the SMTP envelope. Note that this is different than the From address that appears in the message itself. The envelope From address is typically used when reporting errors. See RFC 821 for details.

        If set, overrides the mail.smtp.from property.

        from - the envelope From address
      • getEnvelopeFrom

        If true, overrides the mail.smtp.allow8bitmime property.

        allow - allow 8-bit flag
      • getAllow8bitMIME

        public boolean getAllow8bitMIME()
        Is use of the 8BITMIME extension is allowed?

      • setMailExtension

        public void setMailExtension​(java.lang.String extension)
        Set the extension string to use with the MAIL command. The extension string can be used to specify standard SMTP service extensions as well as vendor-specific extensions. Typically the application should use the SMTPTransport method supportsExtension to verify that the server supports the desired service extension. See RFC 1869 and other RFCs that define specific extensions.

        For example:

         if (smtpTransport.supportsExtension("DELIVERBY"))
        extension - the extension string
