Hi All,

I have question on by passing email, basically I've configure outgoing email in Central Admin (SharePoint 2010 & Windows Server 2008 R2) to be sent by using Exchange Server instead of local SMTP server, the email work perfectly after configure in Central Admin.

so my question is how can I by pass the email for testing purposes? because I wanted to perform testing and avoid the email send to the recipient, I might need something like by pass the email to local virtual SMTP service, then I able to check the emails in the "Queue" folder.

Please advise, thank you in advanced.

sounds like you solved your own problem in the question. Creating a non prod SMTP server to see what emails flows out is one way of doing it. Properly the easiest and fastest also.
