Created by Kyle Maxwell - http://kylemaxwell.com/

Forked and adjusted by Nathan L. Walls - http://wallscorp.us/ to resolve the issue describe here: http://blog.inspired.no/smtp-error-while-using-gmail-in-rails-271 and satisfy differences between Ruby 1.8.6 and Ruby 1.8.7. Note: this is brittle, but solves a need.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
