Strange issue iwth sending smtp with gmail

When i use this class and execute it, it works fine. i am able to send
email thro gmail. however it does not work if i call this method from
another class. i get a smtp error. dunno what the reasons are. i am
attaching the working file and not working file.

require “action_mailer”
require “smtp_tls”

#ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings =
#{:address => “”,

:domain => “”}

class GmailMailer < ActionMailer::Base
ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
:address => “”,
:port => 587,
:authentication => :plain,
:user_name => “[email protected]”,
:password => “password”
def sendmsg(to, sender, subj, content, strip_ext = true)

#standard ActionMailer message setup
recipients  to
from        sender
subject     subj
#setting the body explicitly means we don't have to provide a

separate template file
body content

##set up the attachment
#attachment  :content_type => content_type,
#            :body         =>,
#            :filename     => file_name.gsub(/.*\//,'')

GmailMailer.deliver_sendmsg(“[email protected]”,“[email protected]”,“hello
this is a test”,“this is a body”)

The above class works as long as the GmailMailer.deliver is called

with thin the fine.

However the following does not work at all if i call it from another
GmailMailer.deliver_sendmsg( “another email
address” ,“[email protected]”," "sometext ",“some more text”)
I get the following error.

Not at all, it was quite interesting and gives food for thought :slight_smile:
