ActionMailer doesn't use HELO domain with SMTP

Reported by higgins | January 5th, 2010 @ 06:02 PM

I stumbled over this when my SMTP Relay used to send out emails from .org (instead of .com) using ActionMailer class. PHP script using the same SMTP Relay account works fine. It seems, that the ActionMailer class never sends the domain name I specify under smtp_settings:domain - no HELO - or EHLO b/c it uses ESMTP.

In email's header I find

from unknown ( by .... ( = IP address of my server I send the email from)

no matter what I put in smtp_settings:domain

    What Rails version contains this problem?
    It seems rails3 is doing the right thing.
