email server for sedning emails

my java deployed in tomcat needs an smtp server.
for which I am thinking of postfix , is this good for sedning emails out, I need only to send emails , i tried yum install postfix and it did install , where will I get the mail server name ?(whihc I should use as mail host in my java app ), while installing it did not ask any details.
I saw the config file /etc/postfix/

I just need simple setting so that my app can send email out. Please advice me further.

here are instructions for configuring postfix. Your question is too generic for us to give you specific answers, go through the guide and work on configuring it and if you run into questions along the way about specific directives or options to set we can help you out.
