need dumb SMTP server for email testing

I have web apps. They email users. Code uses this: smtp.myserver.com

I need to test without users being emailed. I need dumb SMTP server app instead. smtp.dumb.com (just global replace)

I prefer one that allows logging (see what was sent). Only need to be concerned with outgoing mail. I found this:http://quintanasoft.com/dumbster/
Have no idea how this could be used. (or compiled, or anything)

I have win2000 pro. App server is Websphere. I am interested in links and instruction to (free) dumb SMTP servers. Prefer one that can be run locally on win2000 pro.

Any help would be appreciated...

you could just open a free mail account (like wanadoo) and use the server they assign you

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

objects:
that is what I am looking for:
public class TestSunEMail extends HttpServlet {

  static final String FROM = "p@paul.com";
  static final String TO = "p@yahoo.com";

  public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse r
try {
        SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("");
        smtp.from(from);
        smtp.to(to);
}

See I don't want the emails to actually be delivered. I have tried this:
