I’ve been dipping my toe in the RubyOnRails waters but have come unstuck
to send an email using ActionMailer through my ISPs SMTP servers
(Plusnet). I can
see the email being rendered in the log file using the Actionmailer
setting below, however the email isn’t received to any email accounts.
Setting the authentication to either “login” or “plain” with my standard
username & password caused a error message of “535 Incorrect
data”. Sending email from an email client (outlook) only requires the
relay.plus.net, password and username is only needed to collect email
Using other SMPT gateway (which I donâ€™t have permission or
for) throws up different errors, so ActionMailer is trying to send mail
talking to the SMTP servers.
If you have managed to get ActionMailer / ROR to send an email using a
ISP SMTP how did you manage it? Where am I going wrong? Does RubyOnRails
other tests I can carry out to make sure the email is leaving my PC.
Iâ€™d be really grateful for any help
Thanks a lot.
