    Free Online SMTP Servers

    Hi,
    I've written a mail small program in php and I want to to test it. I've been running mercury mail server on my localhost but when i send a mail from it to gmail, yahoo or any other mail server it takes more than an hour to reach the recipient. I've tried using some free smtp servers that i found via google, but everyone of them are asking for authentication or denying the service for no reason. So is there any free SMTP service available online through which i can send mail using my php script. Thanks

    Ask yourself the same question this way: are there any places where spammers can send large chunks of spam anonymously that haven't been shut down due to legal or other issues? Not saying you're a spammer. But I am saying that spammers would obviously abuse this to the point where offering an open SMTP server just even close to practical. Then again, some people aren't very bright....
