I'm not sure how Swing, sockets and SMTP are connected, but it you're trying to send email from your application, then you need an SMTP server. Most computers don't have one installed, so you may have to obtain and install one. An easy-to-use one written in Java is Apache James. You can even embed it in your Java application, so that you can be assured that it's available whenever your application is running.
