Vista: Missing SMTP Server

Microsoft decided to remove the SMTP server feature from the Vista operating system (all versions).
This of course is a real problem for those of us who are developers as we can no longer use the local SMTP server to send emails from our applications as we are developing and testing them.
Luckily there are a few applications out there which we can use instead. Here are just a few alternatives for use as your local SMTP server for development.
Free SMTP Server from SoftStack.com: This is a good alternative as it is extremely easy to setup and use. But on the downside it is limited to 10 emails a day unless you purchase the full version.
If you need to be able to send more than just 10 emails during a day Pegasus Mail provides a free SMTP server titled Murcury SMTP Server.
