Great Windows tool to test email functionality in your app

It can be onerous to set up an email server just to test the relatively simple email functionality of your application. Smtp4Dev makes testing that functionality completely trivial! Download it from http://smtp4dev.codeplex.com/ , unzip it to your folder of choice, and run it. No muss, no fuss!

If you find yourself testing email functionality on a semi-regular basis, select the “Start automatically after login” and “Minimize to system tray” under the options button when the app is fired up.

The emails sent through smtp4dev will NOT be sent to their end destination, and this is definitely a bonus! Who needs more self created spam after all 😉

Thanks to Robert Wood for creating this great little app!
