Following this I get:
sendmail: recipients with -t option not supported

@BrittTheIsh

Thanks for the feedback. We're reworking this document internally.

@viewbook

We're still having the same issue. Is this resolved already?

@betelgeuse

@viewbook I worked around this by using SMTP directly from rails.

@viewbook

We did too without success on port 25 for smpt.sendgrid.net, what SMTP port did you use?

@viewbook

Port 587 did work with sendgrid. http://docs.sendgrid.com/documentation/get-started/smtp-ports/

Thanks.

@viewbook "Port 465 shows up Appendix A of the 1996 non-standard standard The SSL Protocol Version 3.0 as “Simple Mail Transfer Protocol with SSL”. Unfortunately, it’s not registered for SMTPs, it’s registered for URD – “URL Rendesvous Directory for SSM” by Cisco. The recommended approach, at least for authentication, is to use START TLS encryption on submission port 587."
