Hi Team,

I can't seem to send any notifications. When I attempt to run the send email test I receive the following error:

An error occurred while sending mail (undefined method `finder' for #)

My email.yml:

delivery_method: :sendmail
port: 25

I've tried multiple methods even with the default email configuration file and the same error occurs. In my development.log I do not see anything out of the ordinary?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

If you're using sendmail method instead of smtp, your email.yml should look like this:

  delivery_method: :sendmail
    location: ... (The location of the sendmail executable. Defaults to /usr/sbin/sendmail)
    arguments: ... (The command line arguments. Defaults to -i -t)

If you're still getting an error, please post the error stack trace.

I apologize in advance. I am a moron.

I was using rails v 2.2.2 when the web site specifically mentioned not to. Sorry!

Thanks so much for the response.

Much appreciated.
