    Getting SMTP on localhost

    I currently have Perl, PHP, Apache, and MySQL running on my computer, and what I'm missing is an SMTP program that will allow me to send e-mail via web-based e-mail forms and such. Where can I download one and perferrably, one that is easy to install. Thanks.

    If you have ASP 3.0 you already have a mechanism for doing so, called CDONTS.

    Its pretty easy to write an ASP page to post your form data to which will then be emailed.

    Look up CDO, CDONTS or Sending mail with asp + CDONTS on google - You will find an abundance of code snippets you can pick up and use pretty easily.

    Alternatives, ASPEmail is quite good - does the same thing as CDONTS but via the ASPEmail dll instead of the ASP dll. You can download this from http://www.aspemail.com/
