Email configuration problems

Added by Jaime Rodrigo over 15 years ago

Hi ppl,

We are having a hard time getting email notifications to work. We do get the processing confirmations on the production.log but we get nothing on the mail.
Could you give us a hand with some advice on where to continue looking for the error?

Thanks in advance!

PS: We are running version 0.6.3

What message is displayed by the app when you click 'send a test email' ?

To get more information, edit config/environments/production.rb:
  • set config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors to true
  • comment this line: config.action_mailer.logger = nil

Then restart the app and try to send a test email.
You should see an email dump in the log or an error if the email couldn't be sent.

I have similar problem and similar log..

The app hangs for a minute and then says:

An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

If I set "raise_delivery_errors to true" and "comment config.action_mailer.logger = nil" no errors are appeared in production log.. should they?
