ActionMailer - Sent but no mail?


#1

Hi,

I am attempting to use ActionMailer to send out an email (SMTP) and am
having an issue. The log files show that the email is sent, but the
email is not making it to my inbox.

I have followed the documentation both on the Wiki and in the AWD
book. I’m not sure which setting I have incorrect and need some
pointers.

:authentication - should this be set to true, or :login, :plain,
etc…??? I’m finding conflicting documentation.

:domain - Not quite sure what to put here. I have tried cox.net,
www.cox.net, etc… I even took the HELO domain from one of the headers
generated from my email client and I still didn’t get the email to come
into my account.

Is there any way to get error messages from failed emails? The
development log file doesn’t show anything other than "Sent mail: "
followed by the email I submitted. This should not be a relay issue
because I’m attempting to use the actual smtp server of my ISP.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Michael

Hi,
my settings are like this:

ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp
ActionMailer::Base.server_settings = {
:address => “mail.mydomain.org”,
:port => 25,
:domain => “www.mydomain.org”,
:authentication => :login,
:user_name => “xxxxxx”,
:password => “xxxxx”}
ActionMailer::Base.perform_deliveries = true
ActionMailer::Base.raise_delivery_errors = true
ActionMailer::Base.default_charset = “utf-8”

it works fine

hope it helps

Ettore,

I have the same settings - but still no luck. In fact, I have gone so
far as to provide invalid credentials just to see if I can get an error
to show up and I don’t get anything indicating invalid credentials.

Does anyone have any other input for this? Or possibly other things I
can try? Is there any way to capture any error messages that may take
place?

Thanks for any input or experiences you may have!

Michael
