I read the Rails documentation for creating an email interceptor. It mentions putting the registration in config/initializers, However, there's no mention about where I should store the interceptor itself. What is the best practice for this?

To get started: For Rails 3, Railscasts: #206 Action Mailer in Rails 3 At Github, Rails ActionMailer, the interceptor test file is pretty interesting, around line 642 https://github.com/rails/rails/blob/3e36db4406beea....

Thank you Elizabeth. I'm new to Rails so poking around in the Rails source is insightful. Usually the test case is a good guide for how to use a piece of code. The interceptor is declared right inside the test case. The documentation and the test seem to imply that I should declare the interceptor and the registration in the same file and place it inside the initializers folder. I'm implementing an email interceptor that redirects outbound email to a testing email account during development, so I added an interceptors folder under config and put the registration in development.rb. This seems a sensible place for interceptors to live. It also registers the interceptor only under the right circumstance. Feedback about this is appreciated,
