Changes to ActiveMailer?

I recently updated Rails on my development server. All went well. But I just noticed that my contact page now generates the following error when a contact is submitted.

Net::SMTPAuthenticationError (530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first. 6sm1162914qwd.18)

If I revert back to Rails 2.2.2 - no problem.

Does anyone have any idea what changed to ActiveMailer may be producing this error?


I found this in the changelog for ActiveMailer:

"Turn on STARTTLS if it is available in Net::SMTP (added in Ruby 1.8.7) and the SMTP server supports it (This is required for Gmail‘s SMTP server) 1336 [Grant Hollingworth] "

Oddly enough I'm using gmail and it works with Rails 2.2.2! This change was made to enable gmail and in my case it seems to have broken gmail. I can't find any documentation on how STARTTLS must be accounted for in the config.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Need to install smtp-tls as a result of the change.

Looks like your auth method!
