Settings to send an email from localhost for PHP code in Windows Vista

I am using PHP 5 and Apache to do programming. My code can correctly send emails on the server, but on my own development machine I cannot send emails. There is clearly nothing wrong with my code, so I guess the problem is with my settings.

"Vista does not come with an SMTP server like Windows XP did.

I ran into a similar issue when I switched my development environment to Vista. So, you have to install an SMTP server.

There are many to choose from, but I chose Free SMTP Server to handle development needs."

I would prefer "Free SMTP Server" but , in cases where I want to view the traffic and the messages, then I would choose "Hamster SMTP Server" , which is also free.
