dynamically changing ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method

Hi all,

I need some of my emails to go out using "smtp" and some others using
"sendmail" . Is there a clean way to switch between these two deliver
methods depending upon the mailer method?


maybe with a rake task for the send mail one, running with deamon but it will have to load your app and change the config, i think it will get ugly.

I think (but do test this!) that you could do something like

class SmtpMailer < AM::Base
  self.delivery_method = :smtp

class SendmailMailer < AM::Base
  self.delivery_method = :sendmail

and then derive mailers from those two classes as appropriate. If you
have identical mail that needs to be delivered via either of those two
mechanisms then it might be a bit more complicated.
