comment Is there a simple mail server I can install?
Actually it doesn't even matter to me if the domains reject it - this is strictly for testing purposes, so I'm only sending to myself, and as long as I can see the postfix mail queue to know that it tried to send, I'm fine.

@jgbelacqua - thanks. It worked! I had to change the protocol setting from sendmail to just plain mail (in my php code) but it did send just fine.

@jgbelacqua, so I decided to give your version a shot. Since this is strictly a dev environment, and all I want to do is test php mail() functionality, would I use the Local configuration? (I've added a screenshot of the config screen to my original post.)

I'll give it a shot. Right now this is 100% localhost.

"Just be careful, not to produce an open relay system" - that's exactly why I was asking for something simple with a GUI interface. I'm a developer, not a mail admin, and I need to be able to set this up easily and safely, for the singular purpose of being able to test email-sending php code.

comment Sync only selected subfolders to UbuntuOne?
OK, one more question - how do I STOP syncing a folder? I tried to uncheck the Synchronize This Folder checkbox shown in the ribbon at the top of a folder that was previously set to sync, but it greys out and gives me a spinner graphic like it's trying to do something. If I leave the folder and go to a different location, then go back to the folder, the box is checked again.

OK, I just tried that before I posted, and I could swear that the option was greyed out on subfolders of the Documents folder. Just looked again and it's now available. Strange.
