Local Emails with MailDev

If you're interested in receiving emails locally you can use MailDev to intercept emails and display them in a local inbox.

  1. Install the MailDev CLI globally:

    npm i -g maildev
  2. Assuming you have FxA running locally you'll need to stop the inbox service:

    yarn pm2 stop inbox
  3. Start MailDev on port 9999. You may need to start it with sudo permissions:

    sudo maildev -s 9999
  4. All emails will now be sent to the local inbox, which you can access at http://localhost:1080
