Hi guys,

I've got a program that has been working fine running 1.8.6 using the
smtp_tls gem to send emails via my gmail account.  I'v now removed the
smtp_tls gem because I was under the impression it was included in Ruby
core now.

I've upgraded to 1.9.2 and the code I wrote is now failing:

require 'net/smtp'

def send_email_via_smtp(message, destination_email)
   Net::SMTP.start('smtp.gmail.com', 587, 'localhost.localdomain',
USERNAME, PASSWORD, 'plain') do |smtp|
   smtp.send_message(message, EMAIL_ADDR_THAT_SENDS_EM,
destination_email)
end

When I run the app the first line of the above method is causing this
exception to be thrown:

C:/Ruby192/lib/ruby/1.9.1/net/smtp.rb:954:in `check_auth_response': 530

        from C:/Program Files/EmailOMatic/src/emailer.rb:36:in
`send_email_via_s
mtp'

Any thoughts to why this change is breaking my code?

Thanks for your assistance,
Alex
