Hi i want to test email functionality in my application through java code. i usually test it through my company's smtp server when i m in office.
But i m not able to test it at home.
So is there any free smtp server available to test email things which does not require basic authentication.

Thanks

I don't think there are any publicly accessible mail servers left that don't require authentication these days. But it's quite easy to run a mail server on your own machine, e.g. Apache James (which is even written in Java, so you could embed it in your application).

GMail requires authentication, so this doesn't really address the question.
