Sending Emails

Emails are sent using SendMailSession. Mail session encapsulates the process of preparing emails, opening and closing transport connections, and sending emails.

Mail session is created by the MailServer.

SmtpServer smtpServer = MailServer.create()
.host("http://mail.com")
.port(21)
.buildSmtpMailServer();
...
SendMailSession session = smtpServer.createSession();
session.open();
session.sendMail(email1);
session.sendMail(email2);
session.close();

Since opening session and sending emails may produce EmailException, it is necessary to wrap methods in try-catch block and closing the session in the finally block.

Sending using SSL

The preferred way of sending e-mails is by using SSL protocol. Jodd supports secure e-mail sending. Just set the ssl() flag while creating the server.

Here is an example of sending e-mail via Gmail (port 465 is set by default):

SmtpServer smtpServer = MailServer.create()
.ssl(true)
.host("smtp.gmail.com")
.auth("user@gmail.com", "password")
.buildSmtpMailServer();
...
SendMailSession session = smtpServer.createSession();
session.open();
session.sendMail(email);
session.close();

Everything is the same, just a different session provider is used.
