Hmm... spam is not the goal here... it is important for this app to send
mail regardless if there is an available MTA or not ... 

I checked into the JavaMail api again ... i still don't see where you
can avoid the MTA requirement... 

However i think that i have the answer I needed .. I can either use
JAMES itself and turn off the services i dont need, but i think i may
have to go with rolling my own Avalon style/phoenix container... 

Thanks a lot for the help all :D
