I'd suggest setting up an SMTP mail server on your own computer for test purposes. I did a search for "smtp mail server free" on google and got lots of hits.

Java Mail API cannot be used as a mail server. It can only be used as a mail client.

For sending mails using Java Mail API, you can try connecting to pop3 servers of free email accounts. yahoo and hotmail provide pop3 access at some cost.
