I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. I was searching regarding mail servers and landed here. Although this is an old blog this content is very informative now also. Thanks for the post.

By: Lucas Jellema Thu, 05 Oct 2006 07:37:34 +0000 I had a bit of a problem suddenly with sending emails on my local XP machine – and even with telnet localhost 25.

I have not been able so far to determine what I have changed in my Windows settings, but I could resolve the issue by changing the port number for the SMTP server. The default port of 25 is protected by Windows; when I changed it to 8765

(in the file JAMES_HOME\sar-inf\config.xml:



and added the line:
props.setProperty(“mail.smtp.port”, “8765”);
to my Java Class, I was back in business.
