I'm getting a NoMethodError using Rails 2.1.0 when trying to send an email using ActionMailer. The error is being thrown from the template_format method in ActionView's base.rb file. Apparently the controller.request object is an instance of DummyClass (according to the exception trace) instead of ActionController::Request, and therefore does not have any useful methods associated with it. Right now I'm thinking that because the ActionMailer doesn't actually represent a separate request per se, that the request object is not being created correctly. Thus, when it goes to create the email using the template, it doesn't really know what format to use. Just a hunch. I'm kind of a Rails newb, so any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. Just let me know if you need to know any other information. Michael

Actionmailer is a bit different because the mail has it's own view which has no controller. You'd have to pass the controller in through the message to the mail when you're delivering or building it.

How do I pass the controller through so that a method like template_format will pick it up and use it? Or is there some way to avoid that method being called altogether? Thanks, Michael
