Last week I needed a way to unit-test some code I was about to write that sent notification emails, and ran into SmtpMock. Nifty little bugger. Here's some sample code using it:


[Test]


public void CanSendMailSuccessfully()


{


   // set up mocks for config, windsor


   MockRepository mocks = CreateMocks();


   mocks.ReplayAll();


   // start mock SMTPServer


   SmtpMock smtpServer = new SmtpMock();


   smtpServer.Start();


 


   // call sender


   IMailSender sender = new MailSender();


   sender.SendReport(new Exception("ExceptionTest"));


  


   // check mock server


   mocks.VerifyAll();


   smtpServer.Stop();


   Assert.AreEqual(1, smtpServer.Sessions.Length);


}
