Catch mails

While doing a showcase, developing or other purposes, it comes in handy to see what emails are sent by Dataverse.

Instead of relying on an external service as Mailinator, or similar, just use MailCatcher as a small extra deployment:

kubectl create -f
minikube service mailcatcher

(The last will open the web UI in your default browser.)

The SMTP server can be used via postfix:25, which is also the default config for Dataverse when you “just use” the deployments found in k8s/. (It will “Just Work (TM)”).

Please note that all sent mails will be deleted when you restart or delete the deployment/pod/container.
