Mailhog as alternative to gmail as mail sender
Love the great work & effort you've been putting into Laragon!
Behind huge company proxies it can be difficult to use mail trap / send services as they generate traffic which is frowned upon by company IT.
But there's a locally available alternative to these online services, which can happily introduce chaos in to the connection as well. It's called MailHog
It's got ready made windows binaries as well which can be configured by the command line or environment variables.
I don't presume to know how much work goes into on-boarding a tool like mySQL or any version of php for that matter, but It doesn't seem as the hardest challenge in the basket
@blackfyre : Many thanks for your information.
I'll think about adding it to Laragon because it will increase the installer size (+11 MB).
In the meantime, you can easily add MailHog to
autorunwith Laragon using Procfile:
I'll make a tutorial to make it clear.
@leokhoa Thanks for looking into this
And the info about the procfile
@blackfyre: I've made a tutorial about adding MailHog to Laragon:
Hope it help.
@leokhoa Thank you! It's really a great help!
You should consider to add Mailhog to the Laragon stack.
Mailhog are 11MB worth it!
