1- Does Apache have a local mail server like IIS from which you can send an e-mail programmatically?
2- I am using the example in this link http://snippets.dzone.com/posts/show/3328
to send an e-mail via an authenticated smtp server, but I am getting this exception: java.security.AccessContro
: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission
..etc). I searched on the internet and saw that there is a policy file java.policy that is located in jdk1.5.0\jre\lib\security that you should modify to grant permission for access to the server. I am not sure I quite understand how this would work between a local development environment and a server production environment; would the policy file modifications remain the same and why are they done in the compiling tool; can someone explain to me more about this policy file and how the changes should be in it?
