problem sending email from restful authentication

i am having problems sending email using the restful authentication

the trick is, it seems there is a problem in getting openssl to work.. i
am not sure where this falls into the scheme of things..

the error code i am getting is:

OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError (hostname was not match with the server
  /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/openssl/ssl.rb:123:in `post_connection_check'
  /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:582:in `tlsconnect'
  /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:562:in `do_start'
  /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:525:in `start'

Most problems with smtp come from an incorrect configuration. Can you
show more details of how you configure?

i.e. For me, a functional configuration for sending mail through gmail
looks like this (from config/initializers/action_mailer.rb):

ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp
ActionMailer::Base.raise_delivery_errors = true
ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
   :enable_starttls_auto => true,
   :address => "",
   :port => "587",
   :domain => "engine.local",
   :authentication => :plain,
   :user_name => "bultaco.rick",
   :password => "******"


okay, i was initially used to setting up actionmailer (to use smtp) in
environments, i think..

i have recently upgraded my rails.. i think it's in a new place..

it didn't put it in initializers either.. poking around..
