Ruby 1.8 doesn't yet support SSL for both POP3 and SMTP, though Ruby 1.9 does. I had a post earlier on POP3 over SSL, and I didn't think I needed/wanted to do SMTP. Well. here I am. I was googling for some type of solution, and the first site the came up, was well, a non-free solution.
So I did eventually find this solution posted on the rails wiki, which had the original solution from a blogger in japan. It's odd that it's ranked so low on google. Hopefully, one more link to it will help it bump that useless first site off the top link.
