I am trying to use the smtp_tls plugin to support gmail smtp servers.

I have plugin directory  smtp_tls.  There is a file smtp_tls.rb in the
directory. So I am not sure why this is failing.

I my config I have a require  smtp_tls which is failing on startup.

I do not know if I have smtp/net installed, which is required by

This occurs on my dev and slicehost machines.

How do I find out if I have net::smtp ( etc ) installed ?  If not How do
I install this ?
