I am very young in JavaMail API. I have gotten some materials on it too but the major problem is that I can not really try out what I am reading and this makes reading further dificult.
I have downloaded and installed a mail server (Apache James Project) but this also require a DNS server.

All these are getting towards connecting two or more computers while I one have one.

Please can somebody tell me if there is a way to have a mail server on my local computer and still execut my JavaMail programs to have the test of the real senero of sending mails and recieving one too.

If James in running locally, have you tried using "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" as SMTP and/or POP3 server? It should work.

On my Linux, Courier (IMAP) and Postfix (SMTP) work very well for my development.
