setting up smtp service - domain name on development machine

Hi - I have windows server 2003 installed on my development machine and I want to install the smtp service so that I can use email facilities in sharepoint.  When the setup prompts me for a domain name, what can I enter.  I don't have a domain.  Do I need to set up the dns service to supply one?  If I do, what domain name should I use when setting up the dns service.  I am connected to the internet and don't want to risk conflicts.  Do I need to buy a domain name?  If I do how to I set up the new domain on my machine?
Sorry there's a few questions in this one.  Thanks in advance.

Make it up :) sharepoint.local will do, it can be changed later anyway.

You don't need a valid public name there either, do don't worry about DNS. It doesn't effect which addresses you can send from and such.
