Subject Re: CGI vs SMTP vs Tomcat

Really?!  I've been on this list for a while and do not recall such 
derisive comments.  Perhaps a more optimistic approach would help.

As to the problem, I don't use the setup you are attempting, so you are 
going to have to help with some more info.  Specifically a code example 
and logs for the moment when the connection is attempted.  Further, some 
information regarding the environment would also be helpful -- security 
settings, etc., ...  It may be that the CGI is relying on environment 
variables that aren't available to the tomcat service.
