Inbucket Simple disposable webmail system
Inbucket is an email testing service; it will accept messages for any email address and make them available to view via a web interface.
It allows web developers, software engineers and system administrators to quickly see the emailed output of ther applications. No per-account setup is required! Mailboxes are created on the fly as mail is received for them, and no password is required to browse the content of the mailboxes.
Inbucket has a built-in SMTP server and stores incoming mail as flat files on disk - no external SMTP or database daemons required.

The source code can be found on github.
Precompiled binaries are available on the github downloads page. I don’t compile new binaries each time I commit a change, so you’ll want to compile from source to get the latest version.
