Problem with Apache James

I downloaded and installed James; then I set my DNS servers. Now I am trying to run a sample program that I found on the Internet:

I am sending email to my own account; the program runs without errors, but I don't get the email. I can send email to my self with javax.mail using gmail's SMTP.

Your help will be greatly appreciated,

Right. Gmail considers it spam because you're using a Gmail account but not sending it from a Gmail server. What's to prevent you from using anybody's Gmail account? That's why it looks like spam.

I am facing a similar problem - the only difference is mail is nowhere to be found (not even as a spam). However, the email is present under the James Server file system; local inbox of the user - james-2.3.2\apps\james\var\mail\inboxes\<testuser>

DNS is configured as mentioned in the documentations. Is there a specific change needed to send this email across to the Internet?
I agree. Here's the link:
