== DESCRIPTION:

Mailtrap is a mock SMTP server for use in Rails development.

Mailtrap waits on your choosen port for a client to connect and talks _just enough_ SMTP protocol for ActionMailer to successfully deliver its message.

Mailtrap makes *no* attempt to actually deliver messages and, instead, writes them into sequentially numbered files on disk (hence the name Mail_trap_).

You can configure the hostname (default: localhost) and port (default: 2525) for the server and also where the messages get written (default: /var/tmp). Messages will get written to files named smtp0001.msg, smtp0002.msg, and so on.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Lightweight, no setup
* Runs as a daemon with start, stop, etc..
* Tested with ActionMailer's SMTP delivery method
* Very, very, dumb ... might not work with an arbitrary SMTP client

== SYNOPSIS:

* mailtrap --help (to see Daemonization options)
* mailtrap start --help (to see Mailtrap options)

* mailtrap start --host localhost --port 8025 --once --msgdir=/var/tmp

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Rubygems
* Daemons rubygem
* Trollop rubygem

== INSTALL:

* sudo gem install -y mailtrap
