Textmate Email Bundle installation

This plugin is awesome.  Unfortunately, I can't troubleshoot at the command line and I'm not sure why I can't get this working.

I've installed the latest X-code and run each of the lines mentioned in terminal:

sudo gem install mailfactory
sudo gem install hpricot
sudo gem install tamtam
sudo gem install tlsmail

However, since I'm a copy/paster I really have no idea what this line means: "make sure to install all dependencies and for hpricot, choose option 4 (0.6 Ruby)."  After some googling I did the following:

sudo gem install mailfactory --include-dependencies
sudo gem install hpricot --include-dependencies
sudo gem install tamtam --include-dependencies
sudo gem install tlsmail --include-dependencies

And then I tried:
gem install hpricot -v0.6

However, I still can't get it working.  Am I omitting anything obvious?  I'd truly appreciate the help.  This tool has the potential of saving me hours of time.

Hi bparizek,

Doing a simple:

sudo gem install hpricot

Should suffice. By all rights, does it seem like hpricot installs properly? No obvious errors?

Thanks Travis. In checking it again I've realized this was a silly mistake and all my fault. hpricot installed fine.  I tried to test with a basic text email, saving the file I was testing with as a txt instead of an html in the process.  It seems the plugin requires that it be an html file.  Quite sensical for testing html emails.

I've got a similar issue. I've installed Xcode and I added the gems with no obvious errors. But unfortunately when I do "Email page to (bring CSS inline)" and enter my email address I don't receive any emails.

My email settings are configured correctly from what I can tell.

# Setup your mailing options
to=$(tail -n1 <<<"$to")

but no email is coming through.

Can you think of what could be preventing this?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I can't seem to get it to send either, I installed Xcode from my Snow Leopard install disc and the gems as explained, this is my Terminal transcript...

My gmail details are correct, I also tried my work email details but nothing is turning up. Is there any way to check what its failing on?

Many thanks
