Windows 7 Email server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a very novice wannabe developer i am currently working on a ecommerce web application using C# ,VS web developer, and SQl Server. I am following examples from a book as well on how ro send email alerts incase something goes wrong. However I have been unable to get this to work my coding seems correct but i am wondering that if its because there is no mail server on my machine I am using Windows 7 Enterprise OS. I have gone to Control panel and configured the SMPT optopn under IIS server but I am wondering is it functional or is it just there.

    I guess my question is, does the Windows 7 Enterprise OS has a working smpt mail server or is the smpt option just for display. i have seen forums which states that microsoft no longer packages its OS with a working mail server soince Windows XP. I just want to know whats the fact. Is there are working mail server shipped with Windows 7 Enterprise OS or not
