Subject can't send email from tomcat using javamail api
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2006 13:12:00 GMT
Hi Guys

I'm running a web application on Tomcat 5.5.12, and I cannot connect to
my SMTP server using javamail from it for some reason. The error I am
getting is the following:-
javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host:
smtpServer, port: 25;
nested exception is: Connection refused: connect

What has me totally confused though is that I can telnet to the SMTP
server on port 25. I also made a little test java application to run
outside of tomcat and it succesfully sent an email to the same server!

Does anyone know what might be causing this. Why would it be failing
only from the web application? I have tried just about everything i can
think of.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
