One heck of a time saver for devs to test email sending.No need to go through the hassle of configuring a full featured SMTP Server in your box. Just download this tool below and view sent emails from the comfort of your desktop:

Here’s the description off the site itself:

Windows 7/Vista/XP/2003/2010 compatible dummy SMTP server. Sits in the system tray and does not deliver the received messages. The received messages can be quickly viewed, saved and the source/structure inspected. Useful for testing/debugging software that generates email.

Papercut is another of these simplified SMTP servers.
