How to send the email by Ruby script?


#1

Hi, Guys,
I can read my sina.com email by the following code:
require ‘net/pop’
Net::POP3.foreach(‘pop3.sina.com.cn’, 110,
‘removed_email_address@domain.invalid’, ‘my_password’ ) do |email|
hdr = email.header
if hdr =~ /\d+/
language = hdr.to_s
else
language = “INVALID”
end
puts language
end

I would like to send email by smtp.sina.com.cn, there is code on the
net:

Net::SMTP.start(‘smtp.sina.com.cn’,25) do |smtp|
smtp.send_message “hello”, ‘removed_email_address@domain.invalid’, [‘removed_email_address@domain.invalid’]
end
But I get error message:
e:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:680:in `check_response’: 530
Authentication required (Net::SMTPUnknownError)

So, how can make it I can send the email by the ruby code?

Any suggestion would be quite appreciated.

Thanks.

I have a detailed example here:

not sure if it helps.

I haven’t needed to, but a Google search should find you quite a few
hits.
