After trying to get MAMP Pro to work with MailHog and being unsuccessful on multiple attempts, I gave up and started researching for a better alternative. That's when I found this plugin. I installed MailHog using Homebrew on the mac, ignored all the Postfix settings in MAMP Pro, and installed this plugin. There is literally zero configuration and it works perfectly no matter which domain or email address you test with. Thank you for saving me time and another headache!
