Production SMTP Gmail settings

He everyone, i'm trying to implement Devise her "forgotten password" method into my application. Sadly i'm getting the message "check the production logs", but there is nothing there.

My Production.rb:

config.action_mailer.default_url_options = { host: 'http://..' }
  config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp
  config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true
  config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = {
      :address              => "smtp.gmail.com",
      :port                 => 578,
      :domain               => "gmail.com",
      :user_name            => "..@gmail.com",
      :password             => "..",
      :authentication       => :login,
  }

In Gmail settings i have the "Allow less secure apps: ON" part turned on aswell.

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!

In development the forgotten password email works fine, except production.

For production environment in /config/environments/production.rb you may use something similar to the following (supposing you have a SMTP server on localhost:25):

config.action_mailer.default_url_options = {:host => 'yourdomain.com'}
config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp
config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = {
  :address => "127.0.0.1",
  :port    => 25,
  :domain  => 'yourdomain.com'
}
