    hi guys...i am presently working on my mini-project in my college...and a module of it requires the use of java mailing service...i need to send a mail using SMTP protocol through my java application...i learnt that gmail can be used as a SMTP server to send mails...this is the code of my application...but when i am running this program i am getting a error stating NO CLASS FOUND javax.mail.Authenticator

    import java.util.Properties;  
    import javax.mail.Authenticator;
    import javax.mail.Message;  
    import javax.mail.MessagingException;  
    import javax.mail.PasswordAuthentication;  
    import javax.mail.Session;  
    import javax.mail.Transport;  
    import javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress;  
    import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;  
       public class SendEmail
         public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception
               // Set the host smtp address  
               Properties props = new Properties();  
               props.put("mail.smtp.starttls.enable", "true");  
               props.put("", "");  
               props.put("mail.transport.protocol", "smtp");  
               props.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");  
               Authenticator auth = new   SMTPAuthenticator("MY GMAIL ID","PASSWORD");  
               Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, auth);  
                // create a message  
               Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);  
                // set the from and to address  
               InternetAddress addressFrom = new InternetAddress("praveen");  
               InternetAddress addressTo = new InternetAddress("");  
               msg.setRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, addressTo);  
               // Setting the Subject and Content Type  
               msg.setContent("hiiii", "text/html");  
        * SimpleAuthenticator is used to do simple authentication when the SMTP 
        * server requires it. 
         public static class SMTPAuthenticator extends javax.mail.Authenticator 
               private String username;  
               private String password;  
               public SMTPAuthenticator(String username, String password) 
                   this.username = username;  
                   this.password = password;  
               public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() 
                   return new PasswordAuthentication(username, password);
