ar_mailer

A two-phase delivery agent for ActionMailer. This fork of the ar_mailer gem is a setup-friendlier version of the original created Eric Hodel.

Alternative versions of this gem:

About

Even delivering email to the local machine may take too long when you have to send hundreds of messages. ar_mailer allows you to store messages into the database for later delivery by a separate process, ar_sendmail.

Installing ar_mailer

Add this to your environment.rb:

config.gem 'cyu-ar_mailer', :lib => 'ar_mailer', :source => 'http://gems.github.com'

And install the gem using rake:

$ sudo rake gems:install

Alternatively, you do a manual install:

$ sudo gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
$ sudo gem install cyu-ar_mailer

See ActionMailer::ARMailer for instructions on converting to ARMailer.

See ar_sendmail -h for options to ar_sendmail.

init.d/rc.d scripts

For Linux both script and demo config files are in share/linux. See ar_sendmail.conf for setting up your config. Copy the ar_sendmail file to /etc/init.d/ and make it executable. Then for Debian based distros run 'sudo update-rc.d ar_sendmail defaults' and it should work. Make sure you have the config file /etc/ar_sendmail.conf in place before starting.

For FreeBSD or NetBSD script is share/bsd/ar_sendmail. This is old and does not support the config file unless someone wants to submit a patch.
