String link = "http://www.google.com"+emailid;
String body = "Please verify your email address by clicking on this link "+link ;

 Mail m = new Mail("abc@gmail.com", "abc@123");

 public SendEmailAsyncTask() {
 if (BuildConfig.DEBUG)
    Log.v(SendEmailAsyncTask.class.getName(), "SendEmailAsyncTask()");
String[] toArr = {user_email};
m.setTo(toArr);
m.setFrom("abc@gmail.com");
m.setSubject(subject);
m.setBody(body);
}

@Override
protected void onPreExecute() {
    super.onPreExecute();


}

@Override
protected Boolean doInBackground(Void... params) {
    if (BuildConfig.DEBUG) Log.v(SendEmailAsyncTask.class.getName(), "doInBackground()");

    try {
        m.send();

        Handler handler = new Handler(Looper.getMainLooper());

        handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {

            @Override
            public void run() {
                Toast.makeText(SignupActivity.this, "Email Sent", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

            }
        }, 1000 );



        return true;


    } catch (AuthenticationFailedException e) {
        Log.e(SendEmailAsyncTask.class.getName(), "Bad account details");

        Handler handler = new Handler(Looper.getMainLooper());

        handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {

            @Override
            public void run() {
                Toast.makeText(SignupActivity.this, "Incorrect account details", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

            }
        }, 1000 );


        e.printStackTrace();

        statusDialog.setMessage("Account Details are not correct");
        return false;
    } catch (MessagingException e) {

        Handler handler = new Handler(Looper.getMainLooper());

        handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {

            @Override
            public void run() {
                Toast.makeText(SignupActivity.this, "Email sending failed", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

            }
        }, 1000 );



        e.printStackTrace();

        return false;
    } catch (Exception e) {
        e.printStackTrace();

        return false;
    }
}


@Override
protected void onPostExecute(Boolean aBoolean) {
    super.onPostExecute(aBoolean);

}
}

This one is my Mail.class :-

public class Mail extends javax.mail.Authenticator {
    private String _user;
    private String _pass;

    private String[] _to;
    private String _from;

    private String _port;
    private String _sport;

    private String _host;

    private String _subject;
    private String _body;

    private boolean _auth;

    private boolean _debuggable;

    private Multipart _multipart;



    static {
        Security.addProvider(new JSSEProvider());
    }




    public Mail() {
        _host = "smtp.gmail.com"; // default smtp server
        _port = "465"; // default smtp port
        _sport = "465"; // default socketfactory port

        _user = ""; // username
        _pass = ""; // password
        _from = ""; // email sent from
        _subject = ""; // email subject
        _body = ""; // email body

        _debuggable = false; // debug mode on or off - default off
        _auth = true; // smtp authentication - default on

        _multipart = new MimeMultipart();

        // There is something wrong with MailCap, javamail can not find a handler for the multipart/mixed part, so this bit needs to be added.
        MailcapCommandMap mc = (MailcapCommandMap) CommandMap.getDefaultCommandMap();
        mc.addMailcap("text/html;; x-java-content-handler=com.sun.mail.handlers.text_html");
        mc.addMailcap("text/xml;; x-java-content-handler=com.sun.mail.handlers.text_xml");

        mc.addMailcap("multipart/*;; x-java-content-handler=com.sun.mail.handlers.multipart_mixed");
        mc.addMailcap("message/rfc822;; x-java-content-handler=com.sun.mail.handlers.message_rfc822");
        CommandMap.setDefaultCommandMap(mc);
    }

    public Mail(String user, String pass) {
        this();

        _user = user;
        _pass = pass;
    }

    public boolean send() throws Exception {
        Properties props = _setProperties();

        if(!_user.equals("") && !_pass.equals("") && _to.length > 0 && !_from.equals("") && !_subject.equals("") && !_body.equals("")) {
            Session session = Session.getInstance(props, this);

            MimeMessage msg = new MimeMessage(session);

            msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(_from));

            InternetAddress[] addressTo = new InternetAddress[_to.length];
            for (int i = 0; i < _to.length; i++) {
                addressTo[i] = new InternetAddress(_to[i]);
            }
            msg.setRecipients(MimeMessage.RecipientType.TO, addressTo);

            msg.setSubject(_subject);
            msg.setSentDate(new Date());

            // setup message body

            messageBodyPart.setText(_body);
            _multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

            // Put parts in message
            msg.setContent(_multipart);

            Transport.send(msg);

            return true;
        } else {

Please guide me how to send text and hyperlink in the message body of the email which i am sending in the background.

Answer

Make sure you’re using the official JavaMail for Android.

Then, fix these common JavaMail mistakes.

To send a clickable link, send HTML email. Set _body with a string that includes the html content you want in the message. Change the code that sets the message body to:

        MimeBodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
        messageBodyPart.setText(_body, "utf-8", "html");
