What is wrong in my script?


#1

require ‘net/smtp’

def send_email(from, from_alias, to, to_alias, subject, message)
msg = <<END_OF_MESSAGE
From: #{from_alias} <#{from}>
To: #{to_alias} <#{to}>
Subject: #{subject}

#{message}
END_OF_MESSAGE

Net::SMTP.start(“smpt.server”, 25) do |smtp|
smtp.send_mail msg, from, to
end
end

send_email(“from”, “from_alias”, “to”, “to_alias”, “subject”, “message”)

These are wild guess, due to the lack of error messages:

  • No authentication provided to the mail server
  • The RCPT email doesn’t exist
  • No HELO provided
  • No SMTP server available at the address
  • No network connection
  • Wrong port

And “from”, “from_alias”, “to”, and “to_alias” don’t look like valid
e-mail addresses.

Now can someone please tell me the winning numbers in the next big
powerball lottery?
