I create new user. After creating should received confirmation mail. but
when i open mailcatcher( nothing!

i use mailcatcher v. 0.5.12, Rails 3.2.22

In development.rb added:

# Don't care if the mailer can't send
      config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp
      config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = { :address => "localhost",
=> 1025 }
      config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors = true

What is wrong with settings? How check error? Please, help, thank you.

I just googled: mailcatcher port smtp.  Found lots of interesting

Seems that your config should read per

config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = { :address => "", :port =>
1025 }

Hope this helps

Hi Dmitriy.

Do you use background jobs to send emails? If so, you probably need to
start them in development.

Take a look at your test/development.log and check if email is actually
being sent. Maybe that should help figuring out the issue.

In development mode, the default is to *not* actually send mails, so
you need to change that:

         config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true
