Hi there,

I am trying to sniff out a good free email server with pop3, smtp and imap . Can anybody recommend a good and up to date one ?

I need to install it on my machine to help with development of an antispam client i am developing.

So i need to be able to configure it to install itself on different ports (port configurable) and different local IPs.

It would be great have some kind of logger to so i can see whats arriving etc

I was hoping there was some kind of Open Source standard for a email server that exists on Windows or a Free email server that is classed as sort of a standard and kept with regular updates.

Any help really appreciated

Thanks in advance
