Speed up bug commits by deferring email sending (Windows Bugzilla 5.0.3 server)

Eiren Smith
I now run a Bugzilla 5.0.3 installation on Windows Server 2012 R2. If I were hosting this Bugzilla instance on Linux, I'd use sendmail to defer email, speeding up bug commits considerably.

But is there a similar solution for a Windows-hosted Bugzilla instance?

Thanks!

The mail_delivery_method parameter says this:

'Sendmail' means use the sendmail-compatible MTA installed on the Bugzilla machine. You need to install a third-party sendmail replacement if you want to use sendmail on Windows.

Perhaps someone could recommend a sendmail-compatible MTA for Windows? And perhaps a how-to for using it with Office 365 email?

Thank you.

I'll keep looking for something that drops the outgoing messages into a directory, where they're picked up asynchronously by something else which SMTPs them in its own sweet time.

Seems like IIS's SMTP service can watch a directory for messages and then SMTP them. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa480390.aspx — but I don't know how to get Bugzilla to create those message files and place them there for IIS/SMTP to pick them up.

Thank you. I'll give "fake sendmail.exe" a try at some point.
