sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException

unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Samebug tips2

Set the 'mail.smtp.ssl.trust' system property to an smtp host, like 'smtp.gmail.com'.

If you're using wiremock, configure your code to accept wiremock self-signed certificate or create a keystore and certificate that are trusted by your HTTP client and configure wiremock to use that
