Sendmail for Windows

Once upon a time I met a program, now I can't find it. It works as a local mail server, but does not send all “sent” mail, but simply opens it in a separate window. It was very convenient to test mail sent from the site during development. Maybe someone knows the name? Read more

Deploying an IMAP mail server

Classification of mail servers?

I have a question in a peculiar form. What analogies in the world of mail servers can you give about the world of web servers? For example, what is the mainstream (apache2), which is quite light and functional (nginx, lighttpd), and what is it viewed with suspicion?
