Interface: CreateInboxDto

Options for creating an inbox. An inbox has a real email address that can send and receive emails. Inboxes can be permanent or expire at a given time. Inboxes are either SMTP or HTTP mailboxes. SMTP inboxes are processed by a mail server running at mx.mailslurp.com while HTTP inboxes are processed by AWS SES. Inboxes can use a custom email address (by verifying your own domain) or a randomly assigned email ending in either mailslurp.com or (if useDomainPool is enabled) ending in a similar domain such as mailslurp.xyz (selected at random).

emailAddress

Optional emailAddress: string

A custom email address to use with the inbox. Defaults to null. When null MailSlurp will assign a random email address to the inbox such as 123@mailslurp.com. If you use the useDomainPool option when the email address is null it will generate an email address with a more varied domain ending such as 123@mailslurp.info or 123@mailslurp.biz. When a custom email address is provided the address is split into a domain and the domain is queried against your user. If you have created the domain in the MailSlurp dashboard and verified it you can use any email address that ends with the domain. Note domain types must match the inbox type - so SMTP inboxes will only work with SMTP type domains. Avoid SMTP inboxes if you need to send emails as they can only receive. Send an email to this address and the inbox will receive and store it for you. To retrieve the email use the Inbox and Email Controller endpoints with the inbox ID.

expiresAt

Optional expiresAt: Date

Optional inbox expiration date. If null then this inbox is permanent and the emails in it won't be deleted. If an expiration date is provided or is required by your plan the inbox will be closed when the expiration time is reached. Expired inboxes still contain their emails but can no longer send or receive emails. An ExpiredInboxRecord is created when an inbox and the email address and inbox ID are recorded. The expiresAt property is a timestamp string in ISO DateTime Format yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSXXX.

useDomainPool

Optional useDomainPool: boolean

Use the MailSlurp domain name pool with this inbox when creating the email address. Defaults to null. If enabled the inbox will be an email address with a domain randomly chosen from a list of the MailSlurp domains. This is useful when the default @mailslurp.com email addresses used with inboxes are blocked or considered spam by a provider or receiving service. When domain pool is enabled an email address will be generated ending in @mailslurp.{world,info,xyz,...} . This means a TLD is randomly selecting from a list of .biz, .info, .xyz etc to add variance to the generated email addresses. When null or false MailSlurp uses the default behavior of @mailslurp.com or custom email address provided by the emailAddress field. Note this feature is only available for HTTP inbox types.
