Build your own disposable email server like mailinator

The goal is to have a disposable server for disposable email. This can be easily done with docker and inbucket . TL;DR docker run -it --rm --name inbucket -p 9000:9000 -p 25:2500 -p 1100:1100 inbucket/inbucket Prepare your DNS record In your domain registrar, go to DNS management and add an entry in case you don’t have one. You can use whatever you want. In this example, I want to send any emails to test.softwareinarush.com as in 2308uasdfA@test.softwareinarush.com Add an A record that points to your server On the server, spin up a new container Simply run: docker run -it --rm --name inbucket -p 9000:9000 -p 25:2500 -p 1100:1100 inbucket/inbucket This will start a temporary container with all you need: Web UI 9000 to see emails in real time. Open port 25 to receive email ( could be changed but this works even with the mail command in MacOS ) Optionally use port 1100 for POP3 (I don’t) Test it Send a test email from command line (or other email service) mail -s

PHP, ODBC, DB2 in linux or macOS

A scary tale where docker saves the day TL;DR you may want to use this docker image https://cloud.docker.com/u/mkphp/repository/docker/mkphp/php-ibm-odbc How do you connect PHP to a Database? Well, you use the right driver, right? Which is usually ready for you to use out-of-the-box or at least, you just download it, enable it and that’s it . For DB2 it’s bit more complicated than that. First of all, I’m not saying DB2 is bad as a RDBMS. It has nice features and is robust. BUT… DB2 is a proprietary piece of burocratic software from IBM. It’s ancient . It’s tightly coupled with the operating system from IBM (AFAIK). By being deeply tied to the OS, it means you can’t just install DB2 in your Linux ( ubuntu, fedora, centOS, etc ), MacOS or Windows machine (just like MariaDB, MySQL, etc). Now, that’s a problem. A: What if I want to grab a copy from the database and have it locally to mess it up locally without risking stuff from staging or develop? B: You can’t do
