Help! getting a "can't dup NilClass" error and don't know what to do about it.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I am trying to send out a small batch of emails using an http
request. I know it sounds odd. hear me out.

I have loaded a bunch of emails into this table and just want to
slowly work through them. Sort of a poor mans AR:Mailer. But I am
getting a "can't dup NilClass" when I hit it with a http request.

What's the stack trace ?

Thank you for responding! here is the stack trace and while I am at it

I bet you reminder.body is nil.
