Thanks for your input. Since I want a messaging system which will
not send messages outside, will it be helpful to use ActionMailer or
just write my own set of classes.
If you’re not actually delivering e-mail using the Internet Mail
protocols, then you don’t need to use ActionMailer. Are you referring
to a “private message” system on a Web site, where one member can send
a note to another member? That’s not mail, and the only interaction
such a system would have with actual Cap-M-Mail would be if you design
in a “ping” system that sends an alert through mail to the recipient,
alerting them to a new message. And for that, yes, you would use
ActionMailer to compose and deliver the ping message.
