Blackhole is a fake MTA (mail transfer agent) that is designed blindly accept, bounce or reject all inbound and outbound email without actually processing or storing any of the data. This makes it safe for handling large volumes of email messages.

Blackhole is designed mostly for testing purposes and can be used to test numerous things suchs as;

  • Email send rates, if you need to test how much mail you can send per minute, hour etc
  • Email integration testing and finally
  • if you work in the real world, chances are you’ll need work on a copy of production data from time to time. You can try to anonymous all the data but there is always a chance you’ll miss something. Configuring blackhole as your applications default SMTP gateway will remove any chance of a real person receiving an email they shouldn’t have received.

It is available as source and as SaaS.
