Lately I have been testing e-mail functionality of one application. In the beginning I though that I would write two or three posts about that experience. Now I think there will be more, but not much more. I prefer more shorter articles that two or three longer ones. I am all about little steps, as you will shortly see.

This is the third article. Last week I wrote a little introduction and how to install SMTP server.

As I wrote the last year, when testing e-mail, I am using Ruby and this Ruby libraries:

  • receive e-mail - Net::POP3
  • send e-mail - Net::SMTP
  • create (before sending) and parse e-mail (after receiving) - TMail
