I am making a forum website with email notifications. I need to test these email notifications locally. Ive only ever used MAMP so I dont have much experience setting up dev environments.

What's the easiest way to test Drupal's email notifications locally? Can the Acquia stack do this?

You can log the emails, which also brings some sanity to your inbox. Of cause there is a module for that (or two):

Thats a nice way round. Ideally id prefere emails to be sent but yourse is a close 2nd choice. Thanks – Evans Feb 14 '12 at 15:52
drupal.org/project/reroute_email is another module that will send the emails to a configured address rather than logging them. – gapple Feb 15 '12 at 0:21

Try out Antix. It's easy to set up and works well to test out on a local Drupal install.
