      The best way to test it is probably set up mailing through Gmail:

      1. Set the following in Site Admin -> Plugin -> Message outputs -> email:
        SMTP hosts: smtp.gmail.com:465
        SMTP secure: ssl
        SMTP username: Your email address @gmail.com or your own domain if using Google Apps
        SMTP password: password for the above email account (if using two-step authorization, generate an application-specific password)
      2. Try sending message to the user that has email you are able to access (make sure that user messaging preferences allow receiving personal messaged by email and site messaging preferences for private messages are not set to disallowed).
      3. Ensure that the message has been delivered
