My organization is not giving me the details of smtp server name.
Is there a way we can find the smtp name ourselves?. All i want is to create a email application.

You could use the SMTP server from your ISP.
If you don't know what ISP you use, you could go to http://www.whatismyhost.com/ and then try
smtp.YourISP.com as SMTP server address.

the article you gave was very helpfull. Now i found the ipaddress of the smtp server(i hope). but what is the port number. It tried 25 but it didnt work out.

change port number to 2525 and take another try.
Generally speaking, according to the SMTP standard, the incoming smtp port should be 25 and this value is strongly recommended not to change. However, due to some external issues (most of the time it's because of spam) this valude maybe changed to another
number. You may need to contact your ISP to confirm the right port number which they are using.
this is one article regarding the configuration on smtp server:

Hope my suggestion helps :)
