This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Entertainment and Education APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
Email, which is one of the oldest services available on the internet, is a key mechanism via which you can reach out to your users. Over the last year, the number of services providing this infrastructure as a service has grown to include 6 email sending APIs. The newest, Amazon Simple Email Service, validates the market.
Railsware, creator of Mailtrap (email test environment), has released the Mailtrap API. Mailtrap provides a "fake" SMTP server so developers can test email environments without the need of actual customers or users. Mailtrap has proved a useful tool to the developer community; however, API access to Mailtrap features has been desired for third party integration. Mailtrap Product Manager, Pavel Pavlovsky, announced that numerous developers requested API access over the past year and Railsware is happy to announce its availability.
