    I use mailcatcher. Open source, self hosted, has a UI and API access for retrieving sent mail.

    One small tip: I’d recommend using mailcatcher ( in development. It will intercept emails sent by your app and runs a small web server at localhost:1080 to see if the issue is with your application code or with your mailgun configuration in prod. Also I’d write a unit test for your mailer if you haven’t already :)
