You can work with javax.microedition.io.SocketConnection for socket connections, then deliver SMTP over it.

You can run a local SMTP server. If you are using linux its as simple as starting sendmail. On windows, look into window SFU at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/interopmigration/unix/sfu/default.mspx.

I have a linux server on my network that it used for testing applications which need email.

There are plenty of options. You can talk directly to the SMTP server that handles you mail as long as the mail is addressed to you email address (or any and other mailbox that is handled by the server).

Spam controls may be a problem. Some servers require reverse DNS listings and/or IP blacklists.
