I'm not sure if this is an installation issue, or a bug, but since I can't find any other posts about the problem in these forums, I assume the problem is at my end Wink

I've got a brand-spanking new installation (stable version--2.6.1) running on a redhat server, with up to date versions of PHP and MySQL.

I'm currently trying to get the forums<->mailing list integration working. I have a GNU Mailman mailing list (version 2.1), which I have associated with a forum in the FUD Mailing List Manager. I've added the appropriate procmail filter (pasted from the MLM, with the script location fixed).

Now, when I add a post directly to the forums, it gets posted as expected to the mailing list (albeit with a blank subject line. I note that there's a thread about this problem, which I'll be looking at shortly).

When I submit a message to the mailing list, a post likewise gets added to the appropriate FUD forum, with the subject line and poster name appropriately set. However, the body of the post is empty. I'm not entirely sure where to go next to troubleshoot this. maillist.php appears to run without errors (nothing in procmail.log, or in standard error when I run it manually).

I'm not sure what other information might be relevant. Body mangling has been left blank.

If anyone can recommend a place to start looking, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

> Fixed in CVS.

I've just re-installed from the current CVS, and now maillist.php *does* generate errors when trying to import a mail list message to the forums.

~test.data is my data directory
~test.cp is the web root for FUD
test(at)listserv(dot)domain(dot)net is the mail list address for my forum.

As near as I can tell (and I could be way off on this), it seems to be having trouble parsing the message headers. If this is indeed the case, the message headers from the post are as follows:

I tried removing the first 'From' line (on the chance that it was confused by it), and piped the message to maillist.php manually, but the same errors appeared.

Change you execution line to
php /u2/afs/home/arakune/web_tree/test.data/scripts/maillist.php 1

I think the problem is that it tries to run maillist.php as a shell script and not a PHP script.

Aha! That did it.

Thanks so much for all of your help (and for a great piece of software)! =D I'm very excited about the forum to mail list mirroring (this is something that I've been looking for, for some time).

Hello,

Same problem in FUDforum 2.7.6. : Body is empty.
Is there an issue ?

Edit:

I found why.
The topic is registered on "messages" folder by procmail with name of procmail user. I use different name (apache) and it is unreadable.

You need to make sure that the messages directory and the files in it are chmoded 666 to allow the user procmail runs as to write to them and allow the forum to do the same.

Well, the topics that could not be written before are gone, the fix will only help subsequent messages.

They are written on messages directory but not readable.
If i change to apache:apache after procmailrc work, messages appears on forum.

Just chmod the file 666 and you'll be fine, then the owner of the file wouldn't matter.

Yes that's it.
My .procmailrc make messages on user name of my mail account but make it on 600. I must change it to 666. I am trying to do it on my .procmailrc file.
