Hi
I am setting up a new PHP based website. I am new to this whole website building thing.

I need to setup a mail server on my localhost machine. After lot of research I zeroed in on a Java based tool called Java E-mail Server(JES). I am somehow not able to configure it to perform mail functions from my localhost. Is there any help available?

Is there any other Java based mail server that I can use???
Is it possible to post e-mail from my localhost machine and local address e.g myadmin@mydomain.com to a address such as user@hotmail.com. This when I have not hosted my website yet, but have an ISP and all requisite servers on my machine itself(call it the local test environment)??

I ave tried but not much help seems available on the web, or I might be putting up improper queries... So I turned to the ever helpful Javaranch

James is an open source email server written in Java. I'm not familiar with JES, so I can't compare them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
