I get this error when trying to use the actionmailer gem:

Net::SMTPSyntaxError in EmailerController#sendmail

501 <>: missing or malformed local part

Thanks. My problem was the wrong email format was being entered to the
recipients I was sending to. I think many of these errors are due to
the fact that in the controller they do not get the correct values
from their email form.
