Setting up the Papercut.Service

Papercut.Service.exe uses Topshelf library ( which gives it versatility.

Run Papercut.Service Options:

  • Option 1: Run from the command line: "Papercut.Service.exe" runs the process directly from the the command line. Then you can configure the Service by running the Papercut.exe.
  • Option 2: Install as a service: From command line run the "Install-Papercut-Service.bat" and it will install using one command: "Papercut.Service.exe install --sudo" and start the service. Then you can configure the Service by running the Papercut.exe.

Additional Service Options:

Topshelf offers an array of configuration options from the command line. Type "Papercut.Service.exe help" for a listing of the options.

Configuration of the Service:

Papercut.Service does not require manual editing of files to run or configure. The Papercut.exe and Papercut.Service.exe processes, when run at the same time, will communicate and handle configuration automatically. e.g. When you change the SMTP settings in the UI options, it automatically pushes those changes (and saves them) in the Service. But, if you do need to manually configure, all the settings are in the default Papercut.Service.json file with comments.

Painless to use, attractive interface, and just the amount of functionality I need (including HTML email viewing) to get back to the task at hand.

Spot on. The easiest SMTP Server AND Client for testing email traffic from software applications.

Super stupid easy to use, go to download, run it, it is a click once install. if the app is running then the smtp server is running.
