I’ve got a mailer that works – about every other time. Authentication
fails the other half of the time. There doesn’t seem to be any
particular pattern to it – work once, fail once, work three times, fail
For example, here’s one attempt from my development.log:
[…] and then, immediately afterward, the next:
Net::SMTPAuthenticationError (535 Error: authentication failed
Naturally, I’m checking these on the other end, and what I see in the
logs matches what I see in the mailbox.
Should I assume this is an issue with my service provider, or is there
something peculiar I might have done to cause is?
