Rails, FreeBSD and Postfix


#1

Hi guys,

I’ve been setting up a local test server to give our application a
damn good seeing to before transferring to the Live server and I’m
having some trouble.

I’ve installed a nice fresh FreeBSD 5.4 install, done all the ports
stuff, installed Postfix and confirmed the email server is operating
for outgoing mail. However, I just cannot get Rails to talk to it.
I’ve set a domain within Postfix, added a Unix user for Rails to use
to send mail, and configured the settings in Rails to use that user/
domain, etc. But nothing.

Can anyone give me some handy pointers/gotchas? Or just a hint in
terms of where I should look (log files, etc).

Cheers,
Steve

How are you testing mail? I’t looks to be like actionmailer
wants to talk smtp, does that definitely work?

If so, check the postfix logs.
