Hi everyone,


Is there any way by which we can send email through ARIS Script?

I can see "javax.mail" jar file ARIS lib files. Can we use the classes in that?

I want to use my Gmail SMTP to send my email, but I keep being block by some "Unable to convert connection to SSL" error. Here is the code I use, thanks to you and different website :

        var props = new java.util.Properties();
        props.put("", "");
        props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.port", "465");
        props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.class", "");
        props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");
        props.put("mail.smtp.port", "465");
        props.put("", "");
        var instSession = Packages.javax.mail.Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
        var smtpTransport = instSession.getTransport("smtp");
        smtpTransport.connect(m_server, user, psw);

Hello Jens,

This is gr8. It is working with some small tweak. I was doing the same, and was stuck in Authenticating through server. I was using Authenticator object. Using "smtpTransport.connect()" helped me a lot.

And then i set some more properties to use SSL

props.put("mail.smtp.port", "465");
props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.port", "465");
props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.class", "");
props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.fallback", "false");

Thanks again for your valueable help.

Hi all,

I got error "client does not have permissions to submit mail to this server".

What's wrong?

Hi Vladimir,

You need to contact your network administrator for allowing your ARIS server machine to send emails through the SMTP server.

Generally SMTP servers are configured to allow some specific machines to send mails.

Hi everybody,

First of all, thank you for sharing. It is really useful for me.

But I can not figure out how to specify a path to the attachment?
I always get an "The system cannot find the path specified" error.

Thank you for any help.
