Using php 5.3 and trying to use the mail command. I have windows 8 and want to get a pop3/smtp mail server setup so i can actually test the php mail functionality. I'm using apache web server and IIS for my version of windows 8 doesn't come with a smtp server.
Any idea of what i should use to get this setup.
All attached is a link to Php Class that will send mail to SSL SMTP based servers with secure authentication which is pretty much every major mail server now. I plugged this in and it worked flawlessly after i realized cut and paste removed some important backslash escapes on the strings.

Anyhow i dropped this in and voila it does what php mail will not do which is deal with SSL based SMTP authentication.
This one was a beast to track down. Of course there was allot of chat about PEAR doing the same thing but after search after search i couldn't find a windows based installer for the pear module install. Also i dare someone to try to find any information on Windows 8 SMTP Setup as SMTP is yanked from IIS 8 and i could not find one single article on how to config a SMTP server natively in Windows 8.... Microsoft is just continuing to doom itself.
