Mailinator's API provides programmatic access to all email within the Mailinator system. If your QA department has a need for delivery testing, this is an unprecedented way to have immediate access to thousands of email inboxes.
Mailinator API docs
Since we launched the API a year ago, we've been constantly surprised about the uses people have found for the API. Testing signup systems (with a confirmation email) seems to be a popular choice, but other customers test marketing campaigns and test automated alert systems sending us thousands of emails each day.
The API works on both the public Mailinator system and the private domain system. For the public system you have instant access to any of Mailinator's millions of emails, obviously including the emails you send there.
If you're looking for more privacy, you can setup a private domain and only you (and your API token) can see emails that arrive for that domain.
If you're interested in accessing emails via API - Sign up at Mailinator today and try out the API!
