Setting up a new server

  1. In the Services tab (CTRL-5) you’ll see a node named “SMTP Dummy Servers”
  2. Right click the node and select “New”
  3. Enter “Dummy” as the name
  4. Enter “1025" as the port
  5. Click “Finish”
  6. Right click the added node and select “Start”. It will take a few seconds before the server is started (the icon will turn green when its ready). You can now start testing sending mail on port 1025.

User Comments

  

Exactly what I was looking for

I always used "SMTPDummy" by Kostas Symeonidis, which does the same thing: It listens to Port 25 and displays incoming messages. It's a stand-alone program that I still recommend to everyone who doesn't use NetBeans.

Now with this little plugin, I can use it within NetBeans, too. Good thing!
