Gmail and smtp

hello everyone…

I’m trying to set my email up in production.

During test and development, I just used sendmail, which was stored in
my development.rb folder at /config/environments

Everywhere online suggests that in production, the mailer stuff needs
to be in /config/ and then into the environment.rb file

So - I have this so far,

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
:address => “”,
:port => 465,
:domain => “”,
:authentication => :login,
:user_name => “my_user_name”,
:password => “my_pass_word”,

Unfortunately, this results in a server error (500)

Looking in the log file at production.log, I have this:
OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError (hostname was not match with the server

As i’m new to this, and this is my 1st deployment - I’m not 100% sure
what this means.

Any help appreciated
