I don't seem to be happening here...
config.action_controller.consider_all_requests_local = false
and in script/console, I can see that...
ExceptionNotifier.smtp_settings (as set in initializers/mailer.rb)
ExceptionNotifier.sender_address (arbitrary but valid)
Thus everything seems to be as expected and mail is working because
Authlogic is sending 'activation' e-mails just fine.
Is there some other magic incantation that I am missing?
