Receiving email with SendGrid and Gmail

Receiving email with SendGrid and Gmail

I'm trying to create a contact form using this setup:

https://gist.github.com/abbottjam/5187574

I've configured SendGrid with my Heroku account with all the necessary
environment variables, but still can't get the above to work - any
suggestions?

Thanks!

Not without knowing what happens, no.

BTW, line 19 - the general advice is never to use rescue without 
specifying one or more exceptions that you intend to catch. The risk that 
you'll catch stuff that you didn't mean to (such as syntax errors) is 
immense. It makes your intent hard to read too.

What happens is nothing. I get redirected to the same URL as my form is on,
but what gets displayed is my 404 page. I receive no email.

Happily, that's not my code. :-)

I'll fix that - in fact, catching an exception and reading the message
might be a good way to get to the problem, no?
