Mail sessions facilitate the process of using the JavaMail APIs, which provide applications and other Java EE modules with access to Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP)- and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)-capable mail servers on your network or the Internet.
This page summarizes the mail sessions that have been configured in the current WebLogic Server domain.
In the reference implementation of JavaMail, applications must instantiate
javax.mail.Sessionobjects, which designate mail hosts, transport and store protocols, and a default mail user for connecting to a mail server. In WebLogic Server, you use the Administration Console to create a mail session, which configures a
javax.mail.Sessionobject and registers it in the WebLogic Server JNDI tree. Applications access the mail session through JNDI instead of instantiating their own

The following table lists all of the data points that you can display in columns on this page.
Name Description Name
The name of this mail session.
This value is for user-identification purposes only; applications use the JNDI name to access this mail session.
The configuration options and user authentication data that this mail session uses to interact with a mail server. Each property that you specify overrides the default property value as defined by the JavaMail API Design Specification.
Include only the properties defined by the JavaMail API Design Specification.
If you do not specify any properties, this mail session will use the JavaMail default property values.
Express each property as a
name=valuepair. Separate multiple properties with a semicolon (
The JNDI name that modules use to access this mail session.
Returns the username to be used to create an authenticated JavaMail Session, using a JavaMail
Authenticatorinstance; if this is not set, it will be assumed that the Session is not to be authenticated.
