Single File Delivery Method for Mail gem

Summary

This gem is a delivery-method plug-in for mail that delivers all mail to a single file for testing.

The Mail gem already provides a file delivery-method that appends a copy of each message to a file named after each message recipient, but I want them to all go to a single file so that I can monitor them from another window with tail -f my-file, or cat my-named-pipe while I hand-test the web interface from a browser.

Of course this is in addition to running automated tests with Rspec and Cucumber. At some point in development, I want to actually see the pages and enter my own inputs and perhaps display the mail messages in an HTML reader.

Synopsis

Mail.defaults do
  delivery_method SingleFileDelivery => '/tmp/my-file.txt'
end
