hi there,
I have set up php-apache and i'm developing a site for a client.
Some of my scripts require email authentication to work, however, my development machine is not connected to the internet and as such I cannot test those scripts.
Is there a way to set up apache or any email server so that I can recieve email from my scripts on localhost??

Any help in setting up and managing such a system would be much appreciated.

No you will need the internet if not then use a diffrant computer. Also localhost cannot be viewed by the public only on your pc.

I'm not quite sure what you are trying to do here, but...

I recommend MailEnable Standard (Free) Addition: http://www.mailenabl...m/download.asp. It comes with an SMTP server you can bind to localhost for PHP to send mail using the mail() function. It also has a POP3 server to recieve email on localhost.
