Nginx configs for Mailcatcher are out there, but if you’re like me you want something simple. I mean it’s Nginx, can’t be that hard right?
Chances are you’re here because you have a dedicated server, and want to setup mail catcher. Well if you’re like me and spent HOURS looking for a ‘simple’ solution; I promise not to disappoint you.
Mailcatcher is something relatively new to me. It’s not something I’ve needed to use because my server’s IP is blocked by google already ( apparently my hosting has done something nefarious at one point ). Since I’m blocked anyhow I use a Gmail plugin for all my personal sites, so I know which sites can send email, while all the rest cannot.
If you’re not familiar with Mailcatcher you should be! it’s just as you’d expect; it catches all emails coming from your server and forwards them to a faux inbox for your viewing pleasure.
