ActionMailer Not Working After Changing Recipient Email Address

Greetings,

Well though my crash-course on Rails, I've encountered a mystery that
is driving my somewhat insane. Our previous web developer wrote a
quick form on our site that allowed the user of the site to request a
consultaion. The user simply fills in their name, email, phone number
and a message, then submits the form. The form was working perfectly,
but I wanted to change the subject line. So, I searched through all of
my Rails files to determine where I would make that change. I found
the appropriate file in "Models".

class Mailer < ActionMailer::Base

  def consultation_request(details)
    @subject = 'Request'
    @body = {:details => details}
    @recipients = 'boss@email.com'
    @from = details[:email]
  end
end

In the process, I noticed that the message was currently being sent to
my boss at 'boss@email.com'. For testing purposes, I changed his email
to my email, 'my@email.com' and sent a test message. It worked great!
Then, I tried to see if I could have multiple recipients by formatting
as follows:

'my@email.com; my@otheremail.com'

It did not work. I didn't get any errors, but I didn't receive any
email either. Obviously, my syntax was wrong, so I changed it back to
just be 'my@email.com' and it still does not work. I can't even get
the original configuration to work. Any ideas? Thank you soooo much
for any help you can provide.

Recipients should be an array of strings. If you use a comma-separated list, that should work as well.

So,

recipients ['boss@email.com', 'me@mymail.com']

is probably best (note that recipients is actually a method and not an assignment to an instance variable). You could also do:

recipients 'boss@email.com, me@mymail.com'

on many systems.
