Ruby on Rails: Configuring the Email Protocol
November 28, 2011

When I was testing my app on my development machine, I had my app configured to send email via SMTP. When I deployed it to the host (site5), email stopped working.

Changing the email protocol in my environment.rb file to sendmail fixed this issue.


Ericbt::Application.configure do
  config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true
  config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors = true
  config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :sendmail

# Initialize the rails application

Keywords: Rails, Ruby on Rails, site5, email, mailer, SMTP, sendmail
