I am looking for a free POP and SMTP server to test a java mail application. It will be running on Windows 2000 Pro. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I'm looking for a server that will run on my machine. I didn't think that Hotmail's server could be downloaded.

I think SMTP is included in the IIS services. I found it in C:\WINNT\Help\mail.chm as well as in the list of "services"

However this won't help with the POP stuff.

Matthew, check out Jakarta's James mail server (http://james.apache.org).

Thanks for the help, everyone. I'm looking at James and it seems like it will do the trick.
