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.

Reviews for this release

Perfect. Absolutely Perfect! I spent a good hour or so looking for a local test mail server that I could just install and test my development. I found papercut from a suggestion on stack overflow, so thought I'd give it a go. Most other solutions require all sorts of initial configuration to get them going, this just requires you install it and point your app's mail server settings to I really hope the developer of this program, doesn't try to expand it or otherwise ruin the recipe of it. It's simple to use, simple to install. What's not to like about it?!

Very good tool, needed to make a few tweaks to look right on Windows Server 2008 R2

It's a very nice tool to test and check the E-mails. It has a integrated SMTP-Server so you just start the program and everything works. The startup needed around 20 seconds which is very long. I have to check if this was just a problem with my computer or if the program needs so long (thats why 4 stars). But nice and handy tool! (Testet smtp4dev before) EDIT: 5 Stars now. I don't know which tasks were running but start time is ~3 Seconds which is okay and good.

Papercut is an excellent tool! By far the most pleasant dummy SMTP client that I have found.
