Hi ,

I have written a mail client, and I want to test it if I am able to send mail with that or not so I want to ask can we simply call that method of mail client from main method and can test ? i tried to test my mail functionality but i did not able to send the mail though i am able to send mail with the same code when i deploy it on weblogic... my doubt is that is server must for sendig the mail apart from SMTP server ? can't i send mail directly using junit or main method ?

No mail server = no mail. You can set up and run a local mail server like Apache James, or use an embedded mail server like Aspirin.
