How to setup external SMTP emailing on a local Magento?

I am trying to test some email sending from my localhost. I'd like to use an external SMTP server for this matter. I am using Windows 7/XAMPP. I tried configuring sendmail.ini with no luck. Where/how can I tell Magento to use specific settings for sending emails?
