Subject Re: Log4j SMTP Appender Tomcat trouble
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2003 13:42:53 GMT

mail.jar shouldn't be in WEB-INF/lib as it is an endorsed library (anything 
java.* javax.*, org.xml.*, org.w3c.dom.*).  Put it in 
CATALINA_HOME/common/lib or endorsed.  This allows Tomcat to use the mail 
api as well as your apps and will avoid troubles when/if the JDK actually 
includes the mail api (does the J2EE jar include it?). Of course, this 
probably isn't your immediate problem.

Is Log4j getting configured under Tomcat for you?  That is, are you getting 
output in other appenders?  If not, get that going first, and then try to 
get the Mail appender working.  Where is 
log4j.properties?  WEB-INF/classes?  Are you configuring it manually?  It 
may have been in the classpath of your IDE, but not of your webapp.  Just 
things to check out.
