        Hmm, strange then just dont define it...

        looking at javamail docs it should work the way i discribed....

        • 16. Re: Unable to use Mailing with SSL StartTLS option

          I found this thread, because I have the same problem - STARTTLS mode doesn't work.


          This is because by setting ssl=true in the sub-system configuration, the mail Session object is created with both mail.smtp.ssl.enable=true and mail.smtp.starttls.enable=true.  Sun's Java Mail implementation sees that the first one is set and therefore expects the server socket to be running with SSL already.  If the port number isn't changed and a connection is made to port 25, the connection fails because the client attempts to negotiate the SSL straight away.  This obviously won't work.


          I see that Tomaz has created a new parameter 'tls', which I hope means that each Java Mail property can be set separately.  However, I'm not able to test with JBoss 7.2 at this time, so cannot confirm this.  I'm currently "stuck" on 7.1.1.Final.



          The second issue, with the from address is because the from parameter set within the JBoss sub-system config sets up the Session's mail.from property, which is only used by the SMTP transport.  When you set a 'from' address in the header of your MIME message, it is / can be completely different.  It is this latter one that the user will see in their mail client (or similar).


          Therefore, Anshu, it depends on what you want to achieve in terms of changing the sender's address.  Once set in the Session, you can't change it.  You could, if really necessary, pull the properties from the Session held in JNDI, change the mail.from property, then use those properties to create a new Session - although if you're doing authentication as well, you won't get the password in the Session properties, so would have to set it manually.  However, it kind of defeats the point really.

            Hi guys,


            I have prepared 7.1.1 compatible mail module, that you can find in attachment.

            that way you will be able to to test it easier.


            Instalation is same as before.


            Let me know if everything works as it should.


            @Dave: you are right, this new version has now two separate flags to control ssl and tls.





            • 18. Re: Unable to use Mailing with SSL StartTLS option

              Thanks Tomaz, I can confirm that setting the tls attribute to true fixes the problem.

                Thank you for confirmation.


                I will make sure this fix comes to next release.





                • 20. Re: Unable to use Mailing with SSL StartTLS option

                  Dear friends, I found this topic and help me a LOT!!! But I am having a problem to setting the JavaMail JBOSS 7.1.1 using exchenge server to send email. Reading this topic I've found that 7.1.1 has a bug regarding the TLS. I used the patch provided by Tomaz Cerar, but I'm still having problems connecting to the exchange server. What server address I use? Which port (587, 993, 995)?


                  My smtp server to exchange (i found this address in outlook configurations): pod51028.outlook.com

                  port: 587


                  I try to use telnet to connect directly to the server in 587 port, but this port is not open. I could only connect (telnet) in 993 and 995 port. I test my code using other smtp server (i.e. Gmail) and works fine, so I think my java code is right, the problem is not to connect to my exchange server. Can someone help me?

                    can you post the configuration you are using (without un/pw ofcourse) so we can easier find what is wrong with it.


                    also what version of app server are you using?





                    • 22. Re: Unable to use Mailing with SSL StartTLS option

                      The configurations...


                              <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:mail:1.1">

                                  <mail-session jndi-name="java:jboss/mail/MailService" debug="true" from="marcelo.magalhaes@snclavalinmarte.com.br">

                                      <smtp-server tls="true" outbound-socket-binding-ref="mail-smtp">

                                          <login name="nobody" password="pass"/>






                      and the socket config...


                              <outbound-socket-binding name="mail-smtp">

                                  <remote-destination host="pod51028.outlook.com" port="993"/>



                      The java code... just to be what I doing...



                      @Resource(mappedName = "java:jboss/mail/MailService")

                              private Session mySession;


                              public String send()





                                        Message message = new MimeMessage(mySession);


                                        message.setFrom(new InternetAddress((String) from.getValue())); <= IGNORE THIS, use default from user

                                        message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress((String) to.getValue()));

                                        message.setSubject((String) subject.getValue());

                                        message.setContent((String) body.getValue(), "text/plain");




                                        return "sucesso";


                                  catch(Exception e)





                                  return "failure";


                      • 23. Re: Unable to use Mailing with SSL StartTLS option



                        reading some docs about this and proper port for usage with TLS should be 587 and host smtp.live.com (but this could have changed recently)



                        can you try with that?

                              This looks like this problem:



                              run app server with this system property -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

                                Hi Tomaz, unfortunately, don´t work


                                I add this line in standalone.bat file:


                                rem Setup JBoss specific properties

                                set JAVA_OPTS=-Dprogram.name=%PROGNAME% %JAVA_OPTS%

                                rem Linha adicionada para inicializar o JBOSS em modo debug

                                set JAVA_OPTS="%JAVA_OPTS% -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8787,server=y,suspend=n"

                                rem Linha adicionada para resovler o problema da conexão SMTP

                                set JAVA_OPTS="%JAVA_OPTS% -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true" <= HERE!!!


                                And nothing.... I think the real problem is about server address/port...:

                                • 28. Re: Unable to use Mailing with SSL StartTLS option

                                  Mybe it could be helpful to someone. Today I neaded to send email via TLS, im using wildfly 8 final.


                                  To get it working I had to set the property "mail.smtp.starttls.enable" to true to the mail session in java.


                                  My config in standalone xml:


                                        <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:mail:2.0">

                                              <mail-session name="default" jndi-name="java:jboss/mail/Default"  debug="true">

                                                  <smtp-server outbound-socket-binding-ref="mail-smtp" tls="true" username="************" password="************"/>




                                        <outbound-socket-binding name="mail-smtp">

                                              <remote-destination host="my.host.com" port="587"/>


                                  My java code:



                                  public class EmailHandler {



                                      private Session mailSession;



                                      public void sendMail(){


                                          try {


                                              mailSession.getProperties().put("mail.smtp.starttls.enable", true);


                                              MimeMessage m = new MimeMessage(mailSession);

                                              Address from = new InternetAddress("from-mail");

                                              Address[] to = new InternetAddress[] {new InternetAddress("to-mail") };



                                              m.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, to);

                                              m.setSubject("JBoss AS 7 Mail");

                                              m.setSentDate(new java.util.Date());

                                              m.setContent("Mail sent from JBoss AS 7","text/plain");



                                          } catch (javax.mail.MessagingException e) {








                                  Probbably it could be done alo trougs some configs but I havent found the way for now.  The posted solution works for me withowt problems.
