Actionmailer methods should not be redefined

Reported by Oscar Del Ben | March 2nd, 2011 @ 02:24 PM

Here's my mailer model:

class Notifier < ActionMailer::Base
def message


end end

The problem with this code is that it will override ActionMailer's message private instance variables, causing all kind of weird and hard to track errors. I understand that this happens because we are subclassing ActionMailer::Base, but there should at least be a warning or something.
