Can't find your SMTP server in Vista?
I was doing some dev work last night and found that as part of my solution I needed to send a notification email.
So with the .net 2.0 email code all set up and ready to go, I headed off to the windows features to install a local SMTP server to do some testing. Imagine my surprise when I found that Microsoft had not included an SMTP server with Vista.
A quick search on the net confirmed this but also turned up this little gem, http://softstack.com/freesmtp.html a free SMTP server that is reasonably light weight and can be installed and setup in minutes, and all works in vista without any issues.
