and made following changes to “application.rb”


ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
:address => ‘smtp.gmail.com’,
:port => 587,
:domain => ‘gmail.com’,
:authentication => :plain,
:user_name => ‘removed_email_address@domain.invalid’,
:password => ‘lionesss’,
:tls => true

}


When i send email i get no error but the following message in prompt

Hello Muhammad,

I assume you’ve already installed action_mailer_optional_tls so I
won’t say to do that.

I use:

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
:tls => true,
:address => “smtp.gmail.com”,
:port => 25,
:domain => “gmail.com”,
:authentication => :login,
:user_name => “removed_email_address@domain.invalid”,
:password => “…”
}

But I also needed to make a change to smtp_tls.rb so it would work
with Ruby 1.8.7. Specifically:

Change:

check_auth_args user, secret, authtype if user or secret
To:

check_auth_args user, secret if user or secret

As for some reason check_auth_args went from 3 args to 2.
