Dear friends,

send email . I have rails 2.2.2
     I have made following changes in application.rb

   ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp

   ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
   :address => '',
   :port => 587,
   :domain => '',
   :authentication => :plain,
   :user_name => 'removed_email_address@domain.invalid',
   :password => 'lionesss',
   :tls =>  true

Hello Muhammad,

Your question showed up twice, so answered again.

I assume you've already installed action_mailer_optional_tls so I
won't say to do that.

I use:

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
  :tls => true,
  :address => "",
  :port => 25,
  :domain => "",
  :authentication => :login,
  :user_name => "removed_email_address@domain.invalid",
  :password => "........"


But I also needed to make a change to smtp_tls.rb so it would work
with Ruby 1.8.7.  Specifically:


check_auth_args user, secret, authtype if user or secret

    check_auth_args user, secret if user or secret

As for some reason check_auth_args went from 3 args to 2.
