Global Email Settings in Rails

I was running the functional test and didn't realize it was sending actual emails from my data fixtures. However, I did learn how to globally set the email settings so not to send the emails out during tests.

If you want to use this, create a file called global_email_settings.rb (or whatever you want to name it) and put it in your your config/initializers/ folder. Restart your server to get rolling.

unless ENV['RAILS_ENV'] == 'test'
ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp
ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
:address => '',
:port => 101,
:domain => '',
:authentication => :plain,
:user_name => "",
:password => ""
