I found a very cool utility this week that has saved me some precious time. I'm working on a SharePoint 2007 project running on Windows 2003 Server and I needed to adjust a feature of the application to send some confirmation emails. My first inclination was to setup an SMTP server for testing. As usual, I started with a search on Google and fortunately for me I accidentally stumbled across Papercut as an alternative to doing my email testing. No need to setup an SMTP server. No need to constantly jump into my email and check for the confirmation. For those times when you do need to see the email in an email client (when you need to check HTML rendering) you can forward captured emails.
This is my blog and an attempt to try and contribute a bit of information for all those who have a life developing software. Hopefully you'll find something useful on this blog, I hate to think I'm wasting time.
Have something you need done and done right? I've been creating software for over 24 years and there probably isn't very much I haven't seen. I can create something from scratch or jump in and try to recover a project gone south. Contact me if you would like some help creating or fixing software.
