Tool to test if smtp is working

I need to use smtp email from a workstation and would like a small utility to test it.  Ideally I would like it to let me enter my smpt server address and recipient address and let me click send to send an email.  Does something like this exist to help me test whether it is working?

It needs to run on workstations running XP and W7 x64

Wormly has an online tool for such an occasion.

However, if this does not work, Microsoft has a knowledgebase article on how to use TELNET to test your SMTP server.

Ended up using telnet.  I should have stated in the orginal post this was an internal (not public) smtp server.

Thanks to all for help!
