JavaMail without SMTP server...

Hi,
I need to be able to send email from an app I'm designing, but none of my email accounts allows relaying, even with authentication. Is there a Java package which either (a) allows you to forego SMTP servers or (b) sets one up locally, just so you can send the email?
Thanks,
Greg D

If you are running Linux, it comes with an SMTP server. Windows XP also comes with an SMTP server, but you have to install it with IIS services. You can also use something like Postcast which is a free smtp server.

James is a 100% Java SMTP and POP3 mail server. There's no reason you couldn't just use the SMTP part.

SMTP is the protocal for sending Email. I don't know of any way to send mail without using SMTP.

Try some third party SMTP mail component like this one http://www.lavantech.com/smtpmailer
