Mail Servers for Windows 2000
I'm looking into mail servers for Windows 2000 and damn they are expensive! So far I took a look at exchange, but that costs around $700. I also took a look at Sendmail for NT and that seems really good, but it costs about $500. I checked out download.com and downloaded a few free ones, and they were just terrible.
So can anyone recommend a decent mail server that runs on windows 2000... preferably one that doesn't cost an arm and leg.

I have used "Internet Anywhere Mail Server" from "http://www.tnsoft.com/" and I did quite like it. It has some nice features and was not that expensive compared to other mail servers.

Why not just set up a cheap linux box running sendmail? A P120 with 32 MB RAM should be enough to give sendmail a good platform, plus linux has the security and expandability bonuses. I know you asked for Win2K servers, but a dedicated Linux box with sendmail would be the best option (oh, and maybe a book on configuring sendmail, unless you've done it before, cause it can be a bitch to get working right!!)

Rewandythal's right send mail would be your best bet.
if you want to get something going right away, while your learning sendmail try argosoft. they have a free version. no spyware or third party ads, it easy to configure and can be used with a pop mail client or with an html interface.
