WARNING: This app doesn't work on macOS!
MockSMTP is a native Mac application that embeds its own SMTP server. It also features an e-mail client browser, enabling instant viewing of both raw content and HTML rendering, so you can see how your mail looks when delivered.
Configuration couldn't be simpler: just run the application and everything's set up. You don't even need an internet connection for it to work!

Ratings and Reviews
It's simple and it's a GUI. Yes everyone knows that OSX comes with postfix or similar tool, but when I'm having to learn yet another library / framework / language; I'd rather keep stuff like this basic and brainless. (Besides I'm not going to run my own SMTP server in production anyways.) It does what it advertises.
I think the developer dropped the price in half but I'm sure it's still too pricey for most people, hence the lack of 5 stars. For me, it's worth the money for the convenience and time it saves.
Simple and effective
Was considering writing a mock server in Python or Node, or even plunking down $20 for OS X server to configure its SMTP to do the job this app does out of the box. I would lose more than $10 worth of my time setting something like that up instead of just buying this app.
Works perfectly and does just what I needed.
Works Great! Way Too Expensive.
The app works as advertised. I found no issues in the software at all. However, for a developement tool that serves a single function, it costs too much, especially when compared with other tools that do much much more.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
