Can't POP(3) This.

Hammer Time

So you downloaded inaction_mailer, and you had a folder full of e-mails generated while writing your app?

Now you want to preview your e-mails?!? You people are never happy!

Well, I'm a little tipsy, so I'm going to be nice, and I'm going to let you get at your mails with POP3!

I hope you like it. I do!


gem install popthis -s


Start the server:

popthis tmp/mails/

Now, configure your mail client as follows:

  • Server: localhost
  • Protocol: POP3
  • Port: 2220
  • Username: anything
  • Password: anything

You should now be able to see the contents of your tmp/mails folder in your mail client!


I stole most of the code from here... so credit where credit's due.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
