Take a look at the Apache James mail server project. You should be able to configure it so it is only visible inside your Intranet.

Welcome to JavaRanch, tny shariff!

In a testing environment, I've used Java Email Server (JES) to handle light traffic.

can i use java mail server?if can,please explain how.

How to do what exactly? How to configure the email server? How to send an email with the JavaMail API?

If you're curious about how to send an email with the JavaMail API, I'd suggest moseying on over to the Other Java APIs forum, where you could ask a question, and you might have some luck by trying a quick search on that forum for the keyword "javamail". Note that the search page link is at the top right of this page, and most every page in the Saloon.

If you're curious about configuring a particular email server, then perhaps the Other Open Source Projects forum would be a good place to ask a question, if it's to do with an open source email server.

Moving to the Other Java APIs forum.
