Hi all,
I am testing the JavaMail codes writing in JSP using Tomcat 1.4.1 for local test, and Using Windows 2000 professional platform , and one of the tasks that I should do is to send emails and receive the emails(reading emails from MS Outlook), but the problem that exists is as the following :
it get the following exception :
javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: localhost, port: 25;
nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: no further information

If my compnay has a mail server for intranet, do i have to install a mail server on my local machine?

Note: I am using JavaMail 1.2 for connecting, sending, and receiving the emails from the MS Outlook.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

well.. are you allowed to use the SMTP server? I know you're under an intranet, but you might want to check with your SA if you have enough privileges.

You can use localhost as smtp server only if you have a SMTP server installed in your machine.
But to send mails you can use the smtp server of your company and no need to have your own.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
