Being able to get email notifications, send emails, and retrieve emails are all important parts of any company or organization. If you want to know the performance of your email server, you can use JMeter. The beauty of JMeter is it that puts the power in your hands to measure the performance of sending and receiving emails.
We can define the user according to our requirements and test the performance of the email server. For the configuration email, we need the SMTP sampler.
First, we make a thread group and SMTP sampler.
After that, we add the SMTP sampler.
Here, we define the server name, port, address, username, password, and message. We can attach the file. Here, we are using our email address and a normal message.
Now, we define a listener. We can see the result under View Results Tree.
Now, we read the email from JMeter.
For that, we need to go into Mail Reader Sampler. Here, we define the protocol (POP3 or IMPS).
We define the server host, server port, username, password, and anything else that you need. Now, we run the script and see the result.
And we're done! Feel free to ask me any question regarding JMeter. Thanks!
