I'll move this to the Other Java APIs forum as this isn't really a servlet issue.

The JavaMail libraries have everything you'll need for building an email client in Java.

Sendmail is an open source SMTP server that you could configure within your network.

It's the first link there. And your next question? Google can probably answer that one too. Try it, you'll like it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
