How to test complex email-scenarios? Install Mail-Server and test within velocity?

Hi guys,

my application has quite complex email-scenarios and I’d like to do 2 things:

  1. install a local imap/smtp/mail server to be able to test my application with those accounts manually during development
  2. run integrational tests from velocity using those accounts

Has anyone done this before?
Does anyone know a simple mailserver for osx to set this stuff up really easily?

I am really looking forward to your tips.

Kind regards

You can use our email stub. It will work without Velocity too

@Sam: that looks cool! Thanks for creating the package and linking to it! :slight_smile: I’ll give it a try.

How about setting up local imap/smtp servers on osx? I have not found an easy solution - right now I am planning to use XAMPP on windows with the included mercury server - which works really easy out-of-the-box.

Does anyone know similar solution on osx?
