I stumbled across a real neaty when it comes to debugging automatically generated emails.
Devnull ist a dummy SMTP server. It takes incoming mails and allows you to display their content without actually utilizing a real mail server. Especially when it comes to ruling out non sent emails (which may also have been denied by the mail server) or wrong formats (e.g. no HTML encoding...) this is a quite unobtrusive way to go.
The website offers an offline version of the tool and an online version running as an applet in your browser. Both require the Java Runtime to be installed. If you are interested in the actual content of a mail and it's encoded via base64 you may use an online decoder like this one.
