Action Mailer Error!

What does this mean?
Bad file descriptor - connect(2)

I would suspect you are having trouble connecting to the database,
however,
it would be more helpful if you included an error trace or more detail
of
any kind. Figuring out errors from a single line not always the best
way to
get results on a mailing list…

Anyone know what error caused this?

Here is some of my code:
ActionMailer::Base.server_settings = {
:address => “localhost”,
:port => 25,
:domain => “localhost”,
:authentication => :login,
:user_name => “Mohammad”,
:password => “bob”,
}
ActionMailer::Base.perform_deliveries = true
ActionMailer::Base.raise_delivery_errors = true
ActionMailer::Base.default_charset = “utf-8”

and then

def sendmail
user = User.find(:first, :conditions => “id = 1”)
email = UserMailer.create_confirm(user)
email.set_content_type(“text/html”)
UserMailer.deliver(email)
render :text => “Thank you…”
end

Also the address, username, and password are fake but, i’ve been told
that it would still work.

are you running sendmail or any other MTA ?
it looks like your timing out on connection to your smtp server
don’t think it rails related persee.

\There is no SMTP server do you know where I can get a free one that has
no SSL?

Bump…

Ok I got it set to a hotpop acct. But now I got this error:
getaddrinfo: no address associated with hostname.

My config:
ActionMailer::Base.server_settings = {
:address => “gamebox.com”,
:port => 25,
:domain => “gamebox.com”,
:authentication => :login,
:user_name => “[email protected]”,
:password => “secret”,
}
ActionMailer::Base.perform_deliveries = true
ActionMailer::Base.raise_delivery_errors = true
ActionMailer::Base.default_charset = “utf-8”

Does anyone know how I can get a SMTP host?

What does this error mean:
535 authorization failed (#5.7.0)
I’ve been trying diffrent host and each one has either that error or
this error:
Bad file descriptor - connect(2)

The problem is that due to spam relaying, their are few providers
that will allow you to send mail using their SMTP server.

  1. Install one on your own server, however, keep in mind that a lot
    of servers don’t accept mail if the IP doesn’t resolve to a domain
    name. Most servers have postfix running, so you can just send them
    through localhost
  2. Use Hotpop.com, you’ll have to register for an account, but it’s
    free (well, they should send you ads, but I have never had one in the
    three years I have my account there, maybe because I’m living in
    Europe). It will allow you to send a certain number of e-mails using
    their servers within a certain timeframe (to avoid spam abuse)
  3. Use your ISP’s SMTP server. They use your IP to allow/disallow
    mail from being sent through.

What are you trying to do and where are you hosting your application?
