Windchill email addresses in test environment

We have a VM for our production and test environment.  I know there are others out there that have the same thing.  What are you doing for email addresses?  i don't want email to go to the real users so I end up modifying the addresses to mine.  This takes a long time.  Is there a better way to do this?  Or are you doing something else so the users don't get the emails?

Viability of this solution depends on the customer's IT requirements...

 

We set up non-production systems with a local mail server.  We use hMailServer on Windows because it is robust and has built in security features.

 

We direct Windchill to the local mail server and the local mail server routes all incoming emails to a single account.  We use Thunderbird or other free mail client to view these emails.

 

This works great for development and test environments.  The emails never leave the server and don't end up spamming production users.
