Just found this useful utility to assist local testing of your app (if it sends emails via SMTP).
It gives a minimal mail inbox web ui which also renders HTML content!

[Note: Needs `ruby-dev` and `libsqlite3-dev` apart from `gem`.
And passed these params for a quick installation
`gem install mailcatcher --no-ri --no-rdoc`

Wish you all a happy and a healthy #2020
