In a 3-tier application I want to use the ability to send and receive mail. This mailservice is only intentend to be used internally (not on the Internet).
I know I have to use a SMPT server.
My question :
which one to use and HOW? Because I do not have any experience in this matter, please give me all possible examples, information ...
Can anyone help me?

I'm curious about the same topic. I read a bit about the Apache James project but don't know enough background to understand exactly how might help me. Yet.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Just to clarify are you asking how to send mail using Java, how to setup a Java mail server or both?
Sending mail is pretty easy. This can be accomplished using JavaMail or any one of many commercial components available. For setting up the server portion James is a known server side implementation of the JavaMail API.
