Mail Bucket

A Chris Smith project.

Mail Bucket is a simple tool that makes testing your mail implementation really easy.

How does it work?

Simply send an email to some @mailbucket.io address. Then perform a GET request to mailbucket.io/<address> to retrieve the email. There is no prior setup of the mailbox required!

Show me an example!

  1. Send an email to mytest@mailbucket.io
  2. curl mailbucket.io/mytest@mailbucket.io

Isn't this insecure?

Well, if you use a simple address like mytest@mailbucket.io, then yes, anybody can read the email you're sending. But don't do that, make up a random address like Y1IhwHzkdnY3z8@mailbucket.io and use that. Additionally, I suggest generating this address on-the-fly rather than hard coding it.
