I’ve been setting up Bamboo to use for sending emails and the final step I’m taking is setting up the actual mailer to send the email. I’m having trouble getting values from the config files and it seems whatever I put into the config files I can’t read and I don’t think it’s actually a problem with Bamboo but with how I’m doing something.
So I have my mailer
defmodule Recipesite.Emails.Mailer do use Bamboo.Mailer, otp_app: :recipesite end
And I have my config.exs
config :recipesite, Recipesite.Emails.Mailer, adapter: Bamboo.TestAdapter, api_key: "api-key"
but when I try to send an email I get an argument error
could not fetch application environment Recipesite.Emails.Mailer for application :recipesite because configuration at Recipesite.Emails.Mailer was not set
and even if I try to use
Application.fetch_env!(:recipesite, Recipesite.Emails.Mailer) I get the same error, but calling something that came defined when I created the phoenix app works, like
Why can I fetch the preexisting config definitions but not my own? What am I doing wrong here?
