Which is by definition, what a "mail server" does.
Not sure which definition you go by, but some mail servers handle outgoing mail only, while others handle both incoming and outgoing mail; so it's important to state what Aspirin does. I'm fairly certain that the question is about whether the sending side needs a mail-sending process that's outside of the mail-sending client, and the answer to that is no. If the question is, in fact, about something else, then Amit can clarify.
Hi, I dunno what you mean by sending mails without a mail server but if you mean testing your javamail application, you can use mock-javamail- just drop the jar in your classpath and it will look like you are connected to a mail server. But this is used for testing and debugging only. Download the jar from grep code
