I'm using smtp4dev to send email alerts from TFS. I'm using Windows VIsta. In TFS administration Console->Email Alert Settings, I set SMTP server as localhost and Email from Address is my mail id. In Visual Studio 2010, Team->Project Alerts, I enabled "Anything is checked in" and gave another email id in Send to field. After my checkins, I didn't receive any email. smtp4Dev is visible in system tray.
In Event Viewer, I found the below Error,
