I just use the smtp  from my ISP, but there is an SMTP service that you can configure. Go to the inetmgr (the same place you go to configure IIS) and you should see a default smtp server  there. If not you can add one by right clicking on the server name and add new smtp server. That should be good  enough to get you through alerts and notifications.

There is a pop server  in your w2k3 installation‚Ķ

If your using 2k3 that then you don't need to install anything. The
default is working fine for me.

I want to define some mailboxes with pop3 connection in order to define a demo scenario... from my understanding this is not possible by default in w2k3 ?

Send Mail. Unix-based, but free, AIUI.

The default SMTP in W2K03 includes POP3, IIRC.

If its windows 2003 just enable SMTP (under IIS options). you dont need
exchange, i.e a message store, you just need a MTA. if you do want to play
around with the POP3 server  that could be your mail store as well.. both options
are available in windows 2003.

if you dont have windows 2003 -
if you really want a full featured MTA/Mailstore then maybe some communigate pro
or something would be easier than setting up another server with "unix" for
testing purposes. http://www.stalker.com/content/cgp_core.html

or just find a win32 binary of sendmail a quick google returned this page:
