@from in emailer.rb not working with rails + gmail

Hi All,

Am trying to send email through gmail in rails. Its working fine. My
issue is @from is not working. I have assigned @from = 'abcd@gmail.com'
in my emailer.rb and :user_name => "wxyz@gmail.com" in my
environment.rb file. When i receive mail, from id is "wxyz@gmail.com"
not "abcd@gmail.com". When its not gmail and port is 25 its works fine.

class Emailer < ActionMailer::Base
  def sendmail(subject, email, sent_at, name, message)
    @from = 'abcd@gmail.com'
    @subject = subject
    @recipients = email
    @sent_on = sent_at
    @body["name"] = name
    @body["message"] = message

ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp
require 'smtp_tls'

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
    :address => "smtp.gmail.com",
    :port => 587,
    :domain => "www.google.com",
    :user_name => "wxyz@gmail.com",
    :password => "mypassword",
    :authentication => :plain

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:


i believe gmail rewrites the from address to help prevent spam. you
can test this using outlook, thunderbird, etc.
i think they want you to set the reply to address.
