Home How do I set up email confirmation with Devise?
 Is there a tutorial out there that explains how to set up Devise's signup confirmation email from scratch (in both development and production), i.e. if you don't have Action Mailer set up? Google searching has just turned up a bunch of separate pieces related to this. No one piece explains enough, and I'm not sure how they fit together. Is there a step-by-step explanation out there, or even something that explains the initial steps? Finally got it working. Followed all the steps in the accepted answer below, then added the following to my environment.rb file: ActionMailer::Base.delivery_method = :smtp ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = { :tls => true, :address => "smtp.gmail.com", :port => 587, :domain => "gmail.com", :authentication => :login, :user_name => "[username]", :password => "[password]" }
