Can't set up gmail: An error occurred while sending mail (getaddrinfo: Name or service not known)

Added by Jean-Paul Lew about 11 years ago

HI there:

I've tried configuring Redmine to send email through gmail according to the following instructions: http://redmineblog.com/articles/setup-redmine-to-send-email-using-gmail/

However, when I send a test email I get the following error: "An error occurred while sending mail (getaddrinfo: Name or service not known)"

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I've scoured through these forums and Google to no avail. I also tried changing the address to localhost. I'm using Redmine 1.2, ruby 1.8.7, rails 2.3.11.
Thanks a lot.
