tempmail

Easily create temporary emails and fetch their inbox.

npm install tempmail

to use the CLI interface, install globally with -g

./tempmail <provider> [emailAddress]
  • Specifying only a provider will create a new temporary email address.
  • Specifying a provider + email will return the inbox (in JSON format).

e.g.

[
    {
        "from": "John Smith<john@example.com>",
        "to": "zqm46662@ssoia.com",
        "subject": "sample subject",
        "date": "just now",
        "content": "\n\t <p>3434234</p>\n\t"
    },
    { /* another email message ... */ }
]

It follows the same concept, and returns the inbox array vs. a JSON representation of it.

var tempmail = require('tempmail');
 
var provider = '10minutemail.net'; // or '10mm.net' 
 
// Create a new temporary email 
tempmail.new(provider).then(function(tempEmail) {
    console.log('new temporary email', tempEmail);
    // Retrieve emails from an email address 
    return tempmail.get(provider, tempEmail);
}).done(function (inbox) {
    console.log('The inbox (empty array - no emails sent yet)');
    console.log(inbox);
});

Providers are services that provide temporary emails.
