Ruby Emailer Program

Here's a Cool Ruby Emailing Program

Need to send an email through Ruby? It's really easy if you have the right packages installed.

First, define your body.

body = "Thank you for your email at #{website}. We appreciate hearing from you. If you have a matter that requires attention, we will contact you as soon as possible. For urgent issues, call #{phone}.\n\n\nThis message was sent because you filled out a contact form on #{website}. Do not reply to this message, this is an unmonitored email address.\nThanks!"

Mailer.deliver_file('','Sender «»',"Thank you for your email!", body)

But wait, now you have to define .deliver_file. This is the method that actually does the emailing:

require 'action_pack'
require 'action_mailer'

ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp
ActionMailer::Base.server_settings = { :address => "localhost", :domain => '', :port => 25 }

class Mailer < ActionMailer::Base
def file(to, sender, subject1, body1, strip_ext = true)

#standard ActionMailer message setup
recipients to
from sender
subject subject1
#set the body without a template like this
body body1


And that's all! Make sure to define the class before you try to use it.
