Automatically Email the reports after Selenium test execution

How to automatically trigger email with reports after execution ?

There might be situations, where you might be tasked by the management people or your clients to send email after your every test execution. Here is a solution for that

This post exclusively written as requested by one of our fellow readers of this blog 🙂

In this post we are going to look how we can send email to the clients
or stakeholders after the selenium test execution has been completed.

The program which we need include in Selenium Framework is,
Download here the Mail.jar
Download here the activation.jar

//The jar files which I have used are activation.jar and mail.jar Can be downloaded from Internet.

import javax.activation.DataHandler;
import javax.activation.DataSource;
import javax.activation.FileDataSource;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import java.util.*;

public class SendMail

//reportFileName = TestExecutionResultFileName
public static void execute(String reportFileName) throws Exception

String path=<Report file path>;

String[] to={"<stakeholder1>","<stakeholder2>"};
String[] cc={};
String[] bcc={"<AutomationTester>"};

"<Subject line>",
"<Contents if any>",

public static boolean sendMail(String userName,
String passWord,
String host,
String port,
String starttls,
String auth,
boolean debug,
String socketFactoryClass,
String fallback,
String[] to,
String[] cc,
String[] bcc,
String subject,
String text,
String attachmentPath,
String attachmentName){

//Object Instantiation of a properties file.
Properties props = new Properties();

props.put("mail.smtp.user", userName);

props.put("", host);

props.put("mail.smtp.port", port);

props.put("mail.smtp.auth", auth);


props.put("mail.smtp.debug", "true");


props.put("mail.smtp.debug", "false");


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


Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);


MimeMessage msg = new MimeMessage(session);



Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();
MimeBodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
DataSource source = new FileDataSource(attachmentPath);
messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(source));

msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(userName));

for(int i=0;i<to.length;i++){
msg.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new

for(int i=0;i<cc.length;i++){
msg.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.CC, new

for(int i=0;i<bcc.length;i++){
msg.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.BCC, new


Transport transport = session.getTransport("smtp");

transport.connect(host, userName, passWord);

transport.sendMessage(msg, msg.getAllRecipients());


return true;

} catch (Exception mex){
return false;

The above Source code will do the job of triggering email after every execution.

Where to how to use it?

Add the below snippet at the end of the test execution report creation.
[sourcecode language=”java”]

With this the whole setup of automatic email triggering functionality is integrated with our framework.

  1. Hi
    In the above code for this “String path=” What we need to give the “Report File path”
    And In this command “SendMail.execute(Execution File Name)” What we need to give the “Execution File Name”

    Please clarify above 2 things ,this would helpful to understand .


    • String path = (Just mention the path where your reports are generated at your local machine. eg: C:/seleniumworkspace/reports)

      SendMail.execute(Just specify the file name of the report created for the corresponding test execution)
      for eg. consider a report is generated for a test execution. This report will be located in C:/seleniumworkspace/reports/testcase1.html)
      In this case, the method we need to mention will be : SendMail.execute(testcase1.html)

  4. Can you explain this code once,that’ll be very helpful..


  5. This code is working fine for me. But every time I execute my tests, it publishes the previous report via Email not the latest one.
    Any solution for that ?
    I am calling SendMail function in my teardown.

  6. I am getting Below Exception
    javax.mail.SendFailedException: Sending failed;
    nested exception is:
    class javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host:, port: 587;
    nested exception is: Connection timed out: connect
    at javax.mail.Transport.send0(
    at javax.mail.Transport.send(
    at sendMail.SendMail4.execute(
    at sendMail.sel.main(

  7. I want to send the email only when the test execution fails.
    @AfterSuite(dependsOnMethods = { “CustomListener.onTestFailure” })

    This doesn’t works. Any thoughts!

    • I think html report will complete its generation after AfterSuite function is implemented. if you call sendmail from after suite, probably html report would not have completed generating complete report hence does not work. Let After Suite finish executing and call sendmail separately. This could work for you.

  8. Where to add below code if I am using .xml file to generate execution report? Please help

    [sourcecode language=”java”]

  9. can I have any idea, how to integrate with Jenkins cucumber report? I have location of the path where report generates and store, how can I configure to call this method.

  10. How can I trigger mail through webmail? getting below exception,

    Thanks in Advance

  11. I’m getting error as below. Can you please provide a solution.

    354 Enter message, end with “.” on a line by itself C:\data\test (Access is denied)
    at Method)
    at javax.activation.FileDataSource.getInputStream(
    at javax.activation.DataHandler.writeTo(
    at javax.mail.internet.MimeBodyPart.writeTo(
    at javax.mail.internet.MimeBodyPart.writeTo(
    at javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart.writeTo(
    at com.sun.mail.handlers.multipart_mixed.writeTo(

    at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.sendMessage(
    at com.connect.qc.SendMail.sendMail(
    at com.connect.qc.SendMail.main(

    Mine is a Non SSL port, for which I passed blank “” instead of “” and “starttls” as “false”.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

  12. Hi

    Have you got any solution for sending an automatic email once all test scenarios are executed using Java Cucumber. I found no one has implemented emailing the report automatically once all scenarios has been executed.

    Please share if you have any solutions for this

    • @Anand,

      I have custom HTML reports generated after my execution in Java cucumber.
      and I am making a call to send the email with the help of @AfterClass in my Testclass.

      If this is something you want to try, i can help you with that…
