smtp-http-proxy: Tiny SMTP to HTTP bridge

smtp-http-proxy is a lightweight daemon that posts incoming SMTP requests to an HTTP URL as JSON.

This is useful for services that use SMTP for things like reporting, such as HAProxy’s email-alert.

Usage

The following will start listening for SMTP connections on port 25 of all interfaces, and send incoming messages to https://example.com/receive-mail

smtp-http-proxy --bind 0.0.0.0 --port 25 --url https://example.com/receive-mail

The given URL will get a HTTP POST request with an application/json body, of the following form:

{
  "envelope": {
    "from": "<sender@example.com>",
    "to": [
      "<receiver1@example.com>",
      "<receiver2@example.com>"
    ]
  },
  "data": "From: sender@example.com\nDate: Sun, 12 Jun 2016 18:03:51 +0200\nSubject: Message\n\nThis is a message"
}
