create_inbound_email_from_fixture(fixture_name, status: :processing)

Create an InboundEmail record using an eml fixture in the format of message/rfc822 referenced with fixture_name located in test/fixtures/files/fixture_name.

# File actionmailbox/lib/action_mailbox/test_helper.rb, line 9
def create_inbound_email_from_fixture(fixture_name, status: :processing)
  create_inbound_email_from_source file_fixture(fixture_name).read, status: status
end
create_inbound_email_from_mail(status: :processing, **mail_options, &block)

Creates an InboundEmail by specifying through options or a block.

Options

  • :status - The status to set for the created InboundEmail. For possible statuses, see its documentation.

Creating a simple email

When you only need to set basic fields like from, to, subject, and body, you can pass them directly as options.

create_inbound_email_from_mail(from: "david@loudthinking.com", subject: "Hello!")

Creating a multi-part email

When you need to create a more intricate email, like a multi-part email that contains both a plaintext version and an HTML version, you can pass a block.

create_inbound_email_from_mail do
  to "David Heinemeier Hansson <david@loudthinking.com>"
  from "Bilbo Baggins <bilbo@bagend.com>"
  subject "Come down to the Shire!"

  text_part do
    body "Please join us for a party at Bag End"
  end

  html_part do
    body "<h1>Please join us for a party at Bag End</h1>"
  end
end

As with Mail.new, you can also use a block parameter to define the parts of the message:

create_inbound_email_from_mail do |mail|
  mail.to "David Heinemeier Hansson <david@loudthinking.com>"
  mail.from "Bilbo Baggins <bilbo@bagend.com>"
  mail.subject "Come down to the Shire!"

  mail.text_part do |part|
    part.body "Please join us for a party at Bag End"
  end

  mail.html_part do |part|
    part.body "<h1>Please join us for a party at Bag End</h1>"
  end
end
