I'm trying to implement FUDforums for internal communications at my company. I'm using Postfix with Mailman to import e-mail replies into the forums. The problem I'm running into is that every e-mail sent out shows as coming from forums(at)mydomain(dot)com. (I understand there is an option that sets this) However, I have multiple categories setup with multiple forums inside each category. I have a mailing list setup for each forum with it's own e-mail address. I receive e-mails when new topics are posted to the forums but in order to reply back via e-mail I need to manually change the to: address to the e-mail address associated the mailing list so that it will get attached to the correct forum. Is there somewhere in the code that I can change the e-mail address associated with each different forum topic I have?

Thanks,

See "Mailing List Email" at Mailing List Manager.

Thanks for the quick response.

Maybe I am missing something, but I have already set the "Mailing List Email". Each forum I have has it's own e-mail address and mailing list. I am subscribed to the 4 different forums I have setup. When a new post is added to any of the forums I receive an e-mail address but it always shows at coming from forums(at)mydomain(dot)com (This is the address I set in the e-mail section of Global Settings Manager) I would like to have the e-mails show as being from the e-mail address of the mailing list to make it easier to reply via e-mail.

Well, if you enable "Synchronize Forum Posts to Mailing List" and subscribe to the list, you should get the messages from the list.

You may be confusing mailing list subscription with forum subscription.

I have about 40 forums.

Creating mail lists for each forum is a pain, but my real issue is user management.
My users can't easily subscribe to all forums or even see their subscription status from within fudforum.

IF fudforum could send mail to forum subscribers from the address of each forum, then the mailing list would not be needed - correct?
You setup a mailbox for each forum
FUD pics up mail from the forum mailbox and posts.
When users receive a forum email, it's from 'forum1(at)domain(dot)com' so when they reply it goes to the forum mailbox.

Why use a mailing list??

Is there a way to do this?
Seems its so close to being mail-list independent...

Again- I'm more concerned about user experience.. I want users to subscribe via fudforum and never have to see a mailman subscribe page...

Thanks
