If I want to create email within my application (in production), how is this best achieved??
Following the railsspace tutorial, it only really suggests to use :smtp.
I'd read on another site that to generate emails locally, i need to use :sendmail instead... However - I havent seen any decent examples of how to get this configured to be able to send emails within my local area.
Within my email_controller I have the following code: def remind @title = "Send me my login information" if param_posted?(:user) email = params[:user][:email] user = User.find_by_email(email) if user UserMailer.deliver_reminder(user) flash[:notice] = "Login information was sent." redirect_to :action => "index", :controller => "site" else flash[:notice] = "There is no user with that email address." end end
In environment.rb I have: ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :sendmail
and at the top of the same file I have: ENV['RAILS_ENV'] ||= 'production'
When I try and enter an email address into the form: I tget an error back:
SocketError in EmailController#remind getaddrinfo: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
Has anyone else experienced this, and how do you get it up and running? Many Thanks
