How to send email on my local computer only - when I dont have access to an SMTP server?by rasolomon (Initiate)
|on Feb 11, 2009 at 15:02 UTC||Need Help??|
rasolomon has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I want to be able to send emails on my computer. That means that I need to convert my computer into an SMTP server.
How do I go about doing that? I hear about a free smtp server on http://www.softstack.com/freesmtp.html however I also found out that Perl does Net::SMTP::Server
How do I use Net::SMTP::Server along with another package such as Net::SMTP or MIME::Lite ?
However if there are better solutions so I can send emails from my laptop without using somebody else's smtp server, I would welcome those!

OK, I know this is an easy question for you guys. I would like to use an MTA such as sendmail, qmail, or postfix as Javafan suggested. however I am using ActivPerl and I dont know how I can install these yet.
Also, could you give me some code examples on how I can use these please?
Sorry for the simple question: I tried to google for hours for an answer but cant come up with anything.
