free smtp service

Hello,

I currently use smtp.com (and javamail api) to send my emails.

Is there any free way to send emails (without using a paid service like smtp.com)?

I've had good experiences with Aspirin, an Java library that you can embed in your application.

That's actually what this forum software right here uses to send out emails.

Thanks Ulf. It would probably help cure my expense 'headache'. =)

Btw, I googled and saw hMailServer. It says its free, has webmail, and can integrate with my current antivirus. I will look into it too.

[Edit] I guess they can work together, as Aspirin does outgoing only. (I forgot to mention, I need a mail server too.)

Well, if installing and running a server is no problem, then there are numerous options. I thought you'd want to avoid that.

It seems that hMailServer does SMTP as well, so there'd be no reason to use Aspirin at all.

Thanks Ulf.

I was able to complete a certain setup.
====================
api:javamail

Mail Server: free hMail
Mail Client: free Mozilla Thunderbird

Mail Sender: internal to hMail
Mail Sender's Extra Need: I am using a dynamic ip, so mail servers (like hotmail, gmail, etc.) are rejecting my emails. I used tzo.com's outgoing mail service.
====================
If I would need outgoing emails only, I can use Aspirin + tzo.com outgoing mail service (due to dynamic ip).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
