How to test sending e-mails on WAMP?

Presenting a must-have for Windows web developers
Most of the websites I made are hosted on Linux based servers, but I develop them on Windows OS.

I use WampServer which comes with almost all I need- Apache, PHP and MySql. However it doesn't come with any mail sending tool (the same case applies to other WAMP packages like KrasnalServ).

I tried using several solutions, but the one I found best is Test Mail Server from ToolHeap.

This tool catches every e-mail you are trying to send from your PHP code, saves it on your HDD and then displays in your default e-mail client. Whole process takes a few seconds, because there's no waiting for any e-mail server to deliver the message you sent.
