mail problem and rails 2.0.2

  I have some code for sending mails. The same worked perfectly on a
machine running rails version 1.2.5.

Now i have moved the entire application to another system which is
running rails 2.0.2 Whenever i try to send a mail i get an error
'execution expired'

Please go through the following code if you can figure out something
wrong. Do i need to change something for rails 2.0.2?

My mailer model is as follows:

class UserMailer < ActionMailer::Base
  def send_mail(person,textarea,subject)
    recipients person.email1
    from ""
    subject subject
    body textarea
    content_type "text/html"

In the develeopment.rb i have the smtp settings as
# Check error if the mailer can't send
config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors = true

#set delivery method to :smtp, :sendmail or :test
config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp

#these options are only needed if you choose smtp delivery
config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = {
  :address => "",
  :port => 25,
  :authentication => :login,
  :user_name => "",
  :password => '123asd213'

Thank you.
