Rails ActionMailer's sendmail is not sending the emails


I’m trying to send email with the default sendmail delivery method (in development mode). Although there is no error in de log, the email doesn’t get in my mailbox. This is part of my config/environments/development.rb:

config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :sendmail
config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true
config.action_mailer.raise_delivery_errors = true
config.action_mailer.perform_caching = false

I’ve read that Google blocks ports, but is there a solution to this problem, other than using a mail-service like mailchimp or use :smtp with an account?


Have a look at this thread about sending emails from within your app:


I did read it, but I’m not sure about the solutions they give. I will test the email-functionality with my provider. Thanks for your answer.
