Testing emails can be an inefficient process. The email needs to leave your machine, arrive at the SMTP server, get forwarded to your test mail server and then downloaded by your email client. Do you want those 30 seconds of your life back?
Using an SMTP sink, you can receive the email to your screen instantly. Setup is easy.
If you have a script that loads your sandbox environment automatically, you will want to load smtp_sink.py automatically. It will send a test signal to see if it's already running and not start twice.
If you run automated test scripts, the output of the "inbox" can be tested.
