ActiveMailer on Dreamhost

Has anyone gotten this working? I have the following in my development.rb:

config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors = true
config.action_mailer.server_settings = {
:address => “mail.”,

:port => 25,
:domain => “”

:user_name => “info”,

:password => “”,

:authentication => :login


Note that the username and password are commented out… I’ve been trying them with various settings but I’m not sure what to use… or if to use them at all. The wiki is not very clear. Thanks!

Hi Gene,

I experimented with this a good bit last
night and finally got it working using localhost for the server address. More
info here:

I hope this helps!



Here's what works for me at Dreamhost:

   :address => 'mail.<mydomain>',
   :port => 587, # super sneaky
   :user_name => '<username>',
   :password => '<password>',
   :domain => 'mail.<mydomain>',
   :authentication => :login

Note that you need an actual mail account with username <username>
set up through the panel interface.

Geez, I'm completely sorry. I just realized you were asking about
Dreamhost and not Bluehost :slight_smile: Please ignore my previous post!
