Hi Guys, today I want to share some knowledge to you. It’s about Hmail server. Do you know about that? I think you don’t know about it. Same with me too at the beginning. As a java developer, you must know it. It’s very use because with this tool, you can send e-mail from your business application to your customer.
At first, I didn’t use this tool. I just use smpt.gmail.com as host and (587 or 465) as its port when code in java. When I tried to run this program, I got some errors. I fixed, fixed, and fixed it again until I haven’t had any idea. Then, I asked my senior about it. We have tried to fix it.What was the result? Nothing. It can’t be solved. Oh God, how is my web application now? I make it for my essay. I’m so stress.
After a few hours, finally my senior gave advice to me to tried hmail server. We hope that it could work on my application and yeah we got it. Problem solved because my web app can work for send email. Thanks to my senior who helped me to solve my problem.
