Actionamailer

I am using Rails 2.3, and trying to get ActionMailer to work. I have
it configured properly, have followed a very feeble example I have
found ( http://www.tutorialspoint.com/ruby-on-rails-2.1/rails-send-emails.htm
) but I'm kind of stumped on a few things (for one, what is
request.xhr ? I cannot even find this in the API).

Does anyone know a good example for using ActionMailer? I have things
configured ok, I just need a good example to see how the plumbing
works in calling things within rails to move from one view to the next
appropriately, where things are explained for a bimbo like me. -Janna

request.xhr? tells you whether the current request was an ajax
request.

Have you tried the rails guide about this? http://guides.rubyonrails.org/action_mailer_basics.html
