Subject Configuration of the Mail/Session Factory
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2007 18:58:24 GMT

Has anyone gotten the container mail session working with JSPWiki and a SMTP
server that is NOT on localhost and port 25?

For weeks, I've been attempting to get the Mail session factory working in
Tomcat 5.5.25. I can't get the container to recognize the non-localhost SMTP
host and port. Since I'm running JRE 1.6, I've removed the
activation.jarfrom the WEB-INF/lib and moved the most recent version
of the
mail.jar to <CATALINA_HOME>/commons/lib.

In my file, I have:

#  JNDI resource name. The commented-out value is the default
jspwiki.mail.jndiname = mail/Session

#  B. Stand-alone Resource Factory. JSPWiki will use these values if JNDI
#  Your SMTP host (i.e. the one which sends email)
# =

# If for some reason the standard smtp port (25) is blocked, you can change
it here
# mail.smtp.port = 25

#  The address from which the email appears to come
mail.from =JSPWiki <jspwiki@************.com>

# If you are using a webserver that is publically accessible it usually
# doesn't allow you to send mail anonymously
# (because then this mailserver would become an open relay).
# Therefore you can indicate your account information here...
# mail.smtp.account =
# mail.smtp.password =

# The properties below control connection timeouts and TLS (encryption)
# if the mailserver supports it. The commented-out values are the defaults.
# mail.smtp.timeout = 5000
# mail.smtp.connectiontimeout = 5000
# mail.smtp.starttls.enable = tru

Currently, in server.xml I have:

 <Resource name="mail/Session" auth="CONTAINER" type=" javax.mail.Session"/>
    <ResourceParams name="mail/Session">
            <value>org.apache.naming.factory.MailSessionFactory </value>

Previously, I tried this instead:

    <Resource name="mail/Session" auth="Container"
        type="javax.mail.Session" "smtp-*******.com"

Neither configuration works, I'm getting the messages from JSPWiki in the

Any ideas?
