Mailtrap intro


Safe Email Testing


Mailtrap is a fake SMTP server created for development teams to test email notifications by sending them from the development and staging environments without spamming real customers.

Mailtrap "catches" all test messages that users send and keeps them in its inbox, thus avoiding an embarrassing situation of accidentally blasting clients while testing an app. In addition to that, Mailtrap allows sharing inboxes with a team, enables manual- and auto-forwarding of notifications to other email addresses or domains, provides spam and blacklist reports, lets a user preview HTML content of an email and its source, showcases an email’s raw data, etc.

Have you ever sent emails from staging to real customers? Yeah, we did that too... Before Mailtrap.

Mailtrap is an example of a tool which was initially created by the Railsware team for internal use and later shared with the wider dev community. The product idea came out naturally, and was based on the daily needs of our team. The Railswarians took over all stages of product development: from planning and design to implementation and support.

Mailtrap is available in both free and paid subscription plans. Though this product has already gained acknowledgement among developers globally, our team continues improving it based on the feedback we get from the numerous Mailtrap community.
