Need a free SMTP Server to run on Win XP Pro

Hi Experts,

I need a recommendation of a free and complete/full featured SMTP server that runs on Win XP Pro SP2.

I've downloaded from sourceforge.net the group ware package CuteFlow and it needs a smtp server. More information can be found here:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/cuteflow/.

This is the smtp server requirement per CuteFlow documentation: "A E-Mail Server that can be connected via SMTP to do the communication to the receivers."

The code below is from the "send mail"  program (notification.send.php).

Thanks much!
// send the EMail	
	$nMax = sizeof($arrRecievers);
	for ($nIndex = 0; $nIndex < $nMax; $nIndex++)
	{
		unset ($arrCurReciever);
		$arrCurReciever[] = $arrRecievers[$nIndex];
		
		$mail = new htmlMimeMail();
		$mail->setSMTPParams($SMTP_SERVER, $SMTP_PORT, NULL, $SMTP_USE_AUTH, $SMTP_USERID, $SMTP_PWD);
		$mail->setText($strContent);	
		$mail->setFrom($strSender);
		$mail->setSubject($strSubject);
		$mail->setHeader('X-Mailer', 'CuteFlow Document Workflow System');
		$mail->setHeader('Date', date('D, d M y H:i:s O'));
		$result = $mail->send($arrCurReciever, 'smtp');
	}

I have WampServer 2.0 installed.  It uses apachee 2.2.6, php 5.2.5 and mysql 5.0.45.

I'll install IIS and give it a try. Although I am concerned about IIS - localhost listening on port 80.  I hope I can configure IIS http server to a different port and use port 25 for smtp.

However, would someone please recommend a few free SMTP servers.

Thanks.
