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 address. Then perform a GET request to<address> to retrieve the email. There is no prior setup of the mailbox required!

Show me an example!

  1. Send an email to
  2. curl

Isn't this insecure?

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