Javamail Could not convert socket to TLS GMail

0 votes

I want to send an email using JavaMail through Gmail SMTP Server, but I am getting an error.
This is the code:

final String username = "mygmail@gmail.com";
final String password = "mygmailpassword";

Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("mail.smtp.auth", true);
props.put("mail.smtp.starttls.enable", true);
props.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.gmail.com");
props.put("mail.smtp.port", "587");

Session session = Session.getInstance(props,
    new javax.mail.Authenticator() {
        protected PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
            return new PasswordAuthentication(username, password);
        }
    }
);

try {
    Message message = new MimeMessage(session);
    message.setFrom(new InternetAddress("no-reply@gmail.com"));
    message.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO,
                        InternetAddress.parse("test@gmail.com"));
    message.setSubject("Testing Subject");
    message.setText("Dear Mail Crawler," + "\n\n No spam to my email, please!");
    Transport.send(message);
    System.out.println("Done");
} catch (MessagingException e) {
    throw new RuntimeException(e);
}

This is the error:

Could not convert socket to TLS;

The complete stack trace:
