I am using implicit e-mail templates to send HTML messages. I had no
problems till I have upgraded to Rails 1.1. Now the deliver_xxx method
just fails without *any* error message. No error or whatsoever (both
in development and production environments) exist in logs. Stranger
than that, a blank page is being displayed (according to logs, 0
length response, with 200 OK code). I googled for hours without any
success. What am I doing wrong? To repeat, the code works perfectly
with Rails 1.0.

Snippets from my code:


 def contact_us(options)
   recipients      options[:recipients] || $site_email
   subject         options[:subject] || $site_name + ' - Web S.
   from            options[:from] || $site_email
   body            options[:body] || {}

       :body => {
         :name => @contact_form.user,
         :email =>,
         :message => @contact_form.message
       :from =>

<very simple html template>

./script/about output:

Any help is appreciated.
