Is there any free mail server (in this case POP3) for Windows that supports aliases?

For years i have been using my own custom-written POP3 server that worked with the Window's built-in SMTP service (since there was no POP3 server). i want to move off Windows 2000 Server to Windows Server
2003 2008 2008 R2 2012, and i'm dreading having to re-configure the built-in SMTP server with the external COM object extensions that added greylisting. Plus it would be useful to have a product that handled RBL/SBL and graylisting in one product.
But a feature i require is wildcard aliasing of e-mail addresses, with user accounts that are independent of host names.
i've tried hMailServer. And while it looks like i might support aliases:
It doesn't actually work, as only one test e-mail ends up in my account, rather than a half-dozen:
+OK POP3 user email@example.com +OK Send your password pass serverfault +OK Mailbox locked and ready list +OK 1 messages (185 octets) 1 185 .
The reason i want a Windows SMTP & POP3 server is that i have no interest anymore in editing config files.
Note: Even hMailServer isn't really want i want, because user accounts exist under a domain, rather than independant of it, i.e.
would would to be separate user accounts, because they are separate domains.
