I was using Laragon and MailCatcher, but somehow emails sent using that took mind-numbing-ly long (like several minutes). I never figured out why, especially when the emails were just staying on my localhost and everything else was quite fast. In comparison, using this plugin is nice and fast. It saves the emails locally, and I can see them as HTML too.

Since recently discovering this plugin it has been very helpful to me on my local development machine (which is unable to send email, so have Mail Catcher's logs of emails that WP sends out is great!). And the developer has also been very responsive to a few of my suggestions for minor improvements.

Great to see such a useful plugin with no configuration required. Installed it in XAMPP on windows on a test website and I can immediately see the captured sent emails. Export is a handy feature too. Good to see the email body preserves new lines so you can see in the spreadsheet the exact layout of plain text emails. Thanks for making my life easier! 🙂
