Test Email Without SMTP

One of the major pieces of functionality within SharePoint sites is email. If your developing on a VM like most of us you may not have SMTP set up and configured properly, so no emails. I love moving into development or QA or forbid production without testing basic functionality. So to test email all you have to do is make the following change to the web.config file.


            <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory">
                 <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="c:\email" />
