PickupMailViewer

A web front end for viewing all files created by smtp with deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory" See screenshots of Pickup Mail Viewer in action

There's also support for viewing outgoing SMS messages sent from an application, if they are saved to the same directory as the mails. The SMS messages should be saved as .sms files, with the message, sender and recipient as JSON

{ From:"12345678", To:"987654321", Text:"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet." }

##Installation## Build and publish to your IIS server. By default the PickupMailViewer will be installed in http://yourserver/MailViewer/ You may edit the publish settings if you want to install in another path.

##Configuration## PickupMailViewer is configured in web.config Default config is

<configuration>
  <applicationSettings>
    <PickupMailViewer.Properties.Settings>
      <setting name="MailDir" serializeAs="String">
        <value>c:\temp</value>
      </setting>
    </PickupMailViewer.Properties.Settings>
  </applicationSettings>
</configuration>

The only settings you can change is MailDir. Default configuration is c:\temp as that matches the setup in my current project. Change it to the same path your application is saving your mails to.

##Sending application configuration## To configure your own application to save all outgoing mails to a folder, edit app.config or web.config for your application to

<configuration>
  <system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory" from="my-sender@mydomain.com">
        <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="c:\temp"/>
        <!-- This settings isn't used, but without it an exception occurs on disposing
        of the SmtpClient.-->
        <network host="localhost"/>
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>
</configuration>

You may of course use a path different from c:\temp

##Is it safe?## ###tl;dr;### No way! ###The longer story### By default there is no login, no encryption. Nothing that prevents anyone to read your sensitive mails. However the PickupMailViewer at least makes an effort to only display information from eml files and only from the MailDir path. No parent folders. That's about the protection you get.

##Continous integration## Latest build exists on AppVeyor.
