So far today has been one of those days where I can't get anything to work. For the past three hours, I have been trying to require tmail library, and trying to connect to my mail server with imap. Here is a brief session illustrating my frustration.

irb(main):001:0> require 'net/smtp'

irb(main):002:0> require 'rubygems'

irb(main):005:0> require 'net/imap'
=> true
irb(main):006:0> require 'tmail'

I have Ruby 186-27, and I have downloaded a Tmail .gem, .tgz, AND a zip folder, all of which I have put in my rubygems folder. Why won't Tmail load, and why can't I connect to my email server? pop-server.cfl.rr.com is my the outgoing server, and smtp-server.cfl.rr.com is the incoming server. PLEASE help, all I am trying to do is be able to read incoming emails. I have already written code that sends emails, so I know I can write something that receives emails. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated :)

Thanks,
Matt

I am not familiar with Tmail, but I am familiar with the issue of those who try to program Ruby on Rails in Windows. You will have great pains and woes trying to program in Windows(trust me, I already made that mistake.) What you need to do is make a partition or designate an entire drive for Ubuntu which is an amazing free Operating System which is great for RoR developing purposes and personal use. I use it mainly for developing, but I may start to use it more and more for personal stuff. Please read the forums sticky on RoR. You can always submit an issue over at github about tmail. I am assuming that's where that gem is hosted, since basically almost every gem is hosted at Github.
