Testing with JavaMail

Does anybody know a way to quickly configure a JNDI mail resource to write mail as files on your local machine (eg sendmail) instead of actually sending email so we can test without inadvertently spamming people if our other steps to prevent that didn't work (removing real emails from the development database)?  That would be great.

Update: This thread lists several good options.  Dumbster and Papercut look simplest/best

Apache Geronimo First Impressions

Their error messages bite.  I had to manually check every single port they had configured by default for other listening programs because I couldn't tell what port number was causing a problem that prevented me from starting it.
Also, the "Set it up as a windows service" instructions stink too.

Liferay Trunk

For what it's worth, I wish Liferay had a continuous build server (Hudson or CruiseControl or whatever Atlassian offers) so bleeding edge users could know which subversion revision last worked without problems.

(It does.  Read the comments.)
