Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.

Inbucket now includes a Dockerfile, which allows you to build a Docker image. We’ve setup an Automated Build for Inbucket, so you don’t have to build your own image. Try it out:

docker run -d --name inbucket -p 9000:9000 -p 2500:2500 -p 1100:1100 inbucket/inbucket

Then point your browser at localhost:9000

Default Configuration

The initial configuration is set by the ENV statements in the Configuration section of our Dockerfile. You may use Docker environment variables to override or further customize Inbucket.
