“Excuse me, Mr./Mrs. Client, I’m so sorry but I accidentally just sent your 3000 users a fake purchase email receipt when I was testing.”
Big complex systems are a lot to keep track of, especially when it comes to email. There are emails for resetting passwords, emails for new users, email receipts, email notifications for workflows, etc, and it’s frankly a little terrifying to rely on yourself to remember all the implications of what’s going on when working on local environments, or test servers or anywhere but production. All you have to do to experience this pain is trigger an accidental FAKE email send to REAL people.
That’s where modules like today’s spotlight comes in.
