Problems sending mail in differents instances

Hi everyone!

I have a strange problem when my Portal application (JSPDynpage) try to send mail using the exchange server - note: this server works fine when I send a mail by collaboration-

In DEV instance, the same application works fine and the mails are sending without problems, but... in QA this exceptions occurs:

Sending failed; nested exception is: javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException

It is so strange, because, is the same Portal App, the same Exchange server, and the same users (from, to), the only difference are the instances:




Any Idea??

any suggest??

this is the code:


  Properties props = System.getProperties();

  props.put("", "x.x.x.x");
  props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");

  Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null); User = UMFactory.getUserFactory().getUserByLogonID(iuser.getId());
  MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(session);
  message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(User.getEmail()));
  message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(toAdmin));
  message.setSubject("Inscripción a Curso ");


  Transport.send( message );
  catch(Exception ex){
	error = "Error enviando mail : "+ex.getMessage();

thanks in advance.

it is very urgent, I promise points 😊

    Hi Leslie,

    Transport.send( message );

    can only use with no authentification. Otherwise you need this code :

        Transport transport = session.getTransport("smtp");
        transport.sendMessage(message, message.getAllRecipients());

    Best regards,

    Hi Leslie,

    check the roles your user has in both environments. I could imagine that your user has different rights on the different systems.
