Ruby 1.8.6 + Rails 2.3.2 + ActionMailer + Gmail SMTP


Can someone please help me setup ActionMailer via Gmail SMTP. I tried
many tutorials online and some gems too but either they are not
downloadable or links not working or the suggestions are very vague.

Presently I am using Ruby 1.8.6 and Rails 2.3.2

ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp
ActionMailer::Base.perform_deliveries = true
ActionMailer::Base.raise_delivery_errors = true
ActionMailer::Base.default_charset = “utf-8”
ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
:address => “”,
:port => 587,
:enable_starttls_auto => true
:domain => “”,
:authentication => :plain,
:user_name => “[email protected]”,
:password => “abc”
ActionMailer::Base.default_content_type = “text/html”

I am presently in development mode and hence I am using localhost for
development and dont have a specific domain. Can someone please help?
I spent days playing with this without progress.

Look around for instructions on setting up TLS - Gmail SMTP won’t work
without it.
