Creating a Daemon (win32-service) and Accessing ActionMailer

I'm trying to create a win32-service (ruby script with Rails
environment) utilizing the Daemon class and it currently prematurely
exits when it encounters a method of mine that calls a delivery via
ActionMailer.

Here is the process:
Windows Service (Ruby script Daemon class)
  >
  v
MyModel.save (from within the Ruby script via requiring the Rails
environment)
  >
  v
after_create :deliver_notification

This causes my Daemon to exit. Has anyone tried anything similar? I've
tried breaking the MyModel.save off onto another thread with no luck.

I don't know if the problem is the time required to deliver the message
or if it's because ActionMailer uses its own Daemon.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Permissions problem maybe? I have a vague association in my mind between that error and server not being accessible...

What credentials does your service run under? Is it an account w/network permissions?

Thanks for replying! I seem to have full permissions from the command
line and everything else works from the service except the mailer. I
don't forward any credentials to the mailer concerning my actual login
either.

From the command line in an interactive session? That's != the environment you get when you're running from a service...

If you haven't already, just for a goof, temporarily have the service run under your domain credentials & see if it makes a difference.

Sadly that didn't make a difference. I even tried to log out and back
in again, which still caused the same exception to be logged.

Can a daemon such as ActionMailer's delivery methods be called from
within another daemon (win32-service)?

Vic.

I have what seems to be a solution. The problem was unrelated to
ActionMailer. In reality the problem was occurring because of a few
constants that were declared in multiple places. When MyModel
re-declared these constants this error (Bad File Descriptor) would be
being thrown.
