When I started I found this this SO thread ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method
= :smtp

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
   :address => "smtp.zoho.com",
   :port => 465,
   :user_name => 'someone@somewhere.com',
   :password => 'password',
   :authentication => :login,
   :ssl => true,
   :tls => true,
   :enable_starttls_auto => true }

I tried to enter these settings in the spree admin (even tried to put those
in the spree.rb initializer to override the settings in the admin - still

Send mail as: *no-reply@<my domain here>.com*
Send copy of all mails to: *<my email address here>*
Intercept email address: *<blank>*
SMTP domain: *mail.zoho.com* | <- what is the differentce between those
SMTP host: *mail.zoho.com *|
SMTP port: *465*
Secure connection type: *TLS*
SMTP authentication type: *Login*
SMTP username: *<my-email-address-here>*
SMTP password: *<my-zoho-password>*
Those settings work in a desktop client. When I use Spree nothing happens -
no emails are being sent! I can see the email content in the log file but I
never receive emails.

What email configs have you entered in the Spree Admin panel?

I have successfully configured a google account in other Spree store in
the past. Also I've used the Admin UI. Now with Spree 2.0 I tried many
different things with settings that work in a desktop mail client and still
nothing - Spree does not send mails with Zoho mail server : (

Spree delegates most of the mail configuration to ActionMailer. You
should be able to use similar settings to this person:


As a bit of advice, we previously sent out our transaction mails using
actual mail accounts (using Google Apps accounts) but continuously ran in
to problems with e-mails breaking due to simple things like users resetting
passwords for those accounts. Since we relied on e-mail to provide
exception notifications for things (like when e-mails stopped working) this
caused us problems. Services like Mandrill, Postmark, and Sendgrid offer
some easy to integrate services that are cheap (or free up to a certain
threshold) can offer a great alternative.

Does someone know what email settings should we use for Zoho mail. My
logs say that emails were successfully sent but I never receive anything
(in any environment). Any tips would be much appreciated.
