Vista and SMTP

Number of Views : 2347

As I progress with using Vista as my primary OS, I am finding some things that need to be addressed.

One of the items left out of vista is an SMTP server.  In XP and older operating systems you can have this installed with IIS.  However, vista does not include an smtp server.

You have a few options out there to download (http://softstack.com/freesmtp.html) or (http://www.smartertools.com/Products/SmarterMail/Free.aspx)

Steve (Steve Schofield) has a good post discussing this.  I wish I would have done a search before I started looking all over vista to find the app to install.  

I am upset that they did not include this in the app or give developers another option.
