ActionMailer with no auth


How can I send mail via ActionMailer connecting to the SMTP server with no Authentication? I've tried to ommit the the authentication key on the configuration hash, I've tried to set it to nil and all I get is an error message saying that my server do not implement crum-MD5 authentication. I don't want to use authentication, how do I do that?



Have you tried setting it to :plain?


Yes, Didn't work.

I looked this issue up in the rails cookbook and it says that authentication should be set to nil for no authentication. Have not actually done it but it sounds reasonable.
