Solution :

I had the similar issue but its working for me now, I have changed the setting of my google account by running bellow code: 


final String username = "myemail@gmail.com"; 

final String password = "************"; 

Properties props = new Properties(); props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true"); props.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.gmail.com"); props.put("mail.smtp.port", "465"); props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp"); props.put("mail.smtp.starttls.enable", "true"); props.put("mail.smtp.starttls.enable", "true"); props.put("mail.smtp.socketFactory.class", "javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory"); 

Session session = Session.getInstance(props, new javax.mail.Authenticator() 

protected PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication()


return new PasswordAuthentication(username, password); 



try { 

Transport transport=session.getTransport(); 

Message message = new MimeMessage(session); message.setFrom(new InternetAddress("myemail@gmail.com"));

//formBean.getString("fromEmail") message.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO,InternetAddress.parse("myemail@gmail.com")); message.setSubject("subject");

//formBean.getString( message.setText("mailBody"); transport.connect(); transport.send(message, InternetAddress.parse("myemail@gmail.com"));




catch (MessagingException e) 



throw new RuntimeException(e); 


  • Disable the 2-step verification (password and OTP)

  • Enabling to allow to access less secure app(Allow less secure apps: ON.)

Now you will be able to send mail using above program.
