UserMailer return boolean value

Is it possible to make is UserMailer returns a boolean value depending on whether an email was sent or not? I have a method to send maybe I could put it in here somehow?

def send_initial     UserMailer.deliver_initial(self) end

Hey David

The only thing I can think of here would be to set action mailer to raise delivery errors in your development and production environments: config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors = true

and then add something like the following to the method that sends the mail:

  def my_mail_sending_method     begin       Mailer.deliver_my_email     rescue       return false # => returns false if any exceptions are raised     end     return true # => returns true if no exceptions are raised   end

There might be a better answer out there though? :s
