Ruby Question

Ruby mailer is coming up with an EOFError

I am getting an EOFError (End Of File Error) on this code in my controller. The block where the error appears is at the end of the line that says

UserMailer.deliver_message(
I am unaware as to how to fix this, I have been stuck for about 2 months and this site was suggested. Please help.

def contact
@title= "Contact Us"
if request.post?
@message= Message.new(params[:contact])
if @message.valid?
UserMailer.deliver_message(
:message => @message
)
flash[:notice] = "Thank you for contacting us"
redirect_to contact_url
end
end
end


Here is the message file:

<%= @message.name %> has sent feedback or a question:

Message: <%= @message.body %>

From: <%= @message.email %>


And here is the UserMailer

class UserMailer < ActionMailer::Base

def message(mail)
subject 'Feedback/Questions'
recipients 'Email@email'
from 'webmaster'
body mail
end
end


Alright here is the error I get




EOFError in PedalsController#contact

end of file reached




and here is the application trace

Maybe I am missing something really stupid, but if someone can answer this, that would be amazing. Also, what is my fix?

Answer

Alright, thank you guys, I actually had malformed code in the UserMailer. The actual code I had in the from line had a <> encasing an email address and had the senders name on the outside. Though that has worked on some of the private email servers I have used/work on, it does not work on Hostmonster. Soo, for anyone that ends up using Hostmonster in the future, keep everything about your mailers configuration simple (the message can be complicated but the SMTP Config needs to be simple). Thanks.
