I don't think you'll be able to use localhost as the serverName - javax.mail will be looking for a valid DNS entry, at least in my experiences. So try setting it to something real (doesn't even have to be yours)

After adding a user to a site, the application works fine, but the Tomcat logs throws a 'SendFailedException..Unable to relay to xxx at xxx.com' and no email was received in the user's email address.
