I am wondering if I can write an applet that will send information from a number of forms to my email address without all the %$= etc. and without using CGI scripts (my server doesn’t allow CGI scripts).
If the SMTP port (25) on your web server hasn’t been disabled by thesystem administrator, you can open a socket to it and mimic the SMTPprotocol. Let’s say your host is www.sun.com:
Socket s = new Socket(“www.sun.com”, 25); PrintStream out = newPrintStream(s.getOutputStream());Then send the string:
HELO xxx MAIL FROM: yyy RCPT TO: [email protected] DATA
