Hi everybody,
I am going to have an email server on my pc and read emails by using JavaMail Api.So i downloaded "javamail-1.4.1" , "jaf-1.0.2" and also "jes-1.6.1" and added their jar files to the ClassPath.
Here is a problem confusing me some days.I have a simple java program which needs host,id and password.
I don't know exactly how should i configure this email server to set these variables and i will appreciate if anybody can help me.

You haven't downloaded a mailserver yet. You can use one provided by your operating system (e.g. IIS for Windows Professional / Server, sendmail or postfix for Linux etc), or search for one on the Internet.
