Mailfactory permissions problem


I’m running ruby 1.8 under FreeBSD 7.0 and I’m trying to use mailfactory
for normal users (ie: not admin users).

If I start my script as a privileged user such as root or a person in
the wheel group I don’t have a problem. If I start the script as a
normal user though I get this error:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `gem_original _require': no such file to load -- mailfactory (LoadError) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `require' from ./test.rb:8

Here is the script I’m trying to get working correctly:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘net/smtp’
require ‘mailfactory’
require ‘logger’

mail = = "removed_email_address@domain.invalid"
mail.from = "removed_email_address@domain.invalid"
mail.subject = "Testing"
mail.text = "testing"

   Net::SMTP.start("mail.lan", 25){ |smtp|
       smtp.send_message(mail.to_s(), mail.from, [,

rescue Exception => e
print "Exception occured: " + e



Had to change permissions from 774 to 775 on the following directories
