Hello,

In first, I am very happy to discover fudforum and its capability de connect forum web and mailing-list. Thank you for your work.

I have installed it.
I have a mailing-list with 2 people. I have tested. It is ok.
One of them is special and has a box accessible by pop3 and I have the good information to connect to its box. I have tested with an email software and it is ok.
I have added a rule to the mailing-list manager with the information to access the box by pop3 and the corresponding forum and mailing-list.
As the messages are retrieving from a mailbox, I use the Job Administration System. I have configured the good path, "/XXXX"/fudforum/scripts/", If I add the name: cron.php, it will not be saved, but this script is well at this place. And I have added a job: its name is the name of the mailing-list.
When I click on "run now", nothing seems to be done, there are no logs and no messages from the mailing-list are added to the forum.

How can I have logs ? is there something to do anywhere in fudforum ? do you an easy job I can test to verify if the cron.php is working well ?

For forum -> mailing-list: it works well.
All messages in the forum are sent to the mailing-list.

I have looked documentation and this forum. But english is not my language and I can miss something.
So I will appreciate any link about this issue, and also idea, remarks ...

Thank's

You can run maillist.php directly from command line or schedule it with your system's scheduler (probably cron).

Documentation is available at Mailing List Manager.

Best of luck!

Thank you for the link about Mailing List Manager. I have not found it. I like wiki but don't find it as easy as an arborescent site to find information.

If I understand well, maillist.php must be launched by php.exe even if I use cron.php ?
I don't think I have access to php.exe. And there is no cron.
I will search about command-line, but usable for test but not to run in automatic way, and I don't understand how I will retrieve the messages. Do a php script exist ?

And I will look also about the log viewer.

Thank you,

All import scripts require the PHP command line executable.
That would be php.exe on Windows or something like .../php/bin/php on Linux.
It's normally installed with PHP and you really should have it somewhere on your system.
If not, you will have to install it separately.

I have looked at it but no executable php are furnished.
And this one, on my computer has a lot of shared library, so I must compile it with all, or adapt it. So, I think it is difficult and a waste of time for me.

About the fact to read a mailbox, I have seen FudBOX.php, http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/FudBOX.php, but it works also with command line, so it is the same issue for me.

I think the best is to change of host.

Thnak you for your help,

I have tested with another host where I can exec php script.
I have tested maillist.php with 3 mailboxes that I can connect and retrieve my email with pop3 protocol.
I obtain errors with messages like "Can't connect to mailbox: Certificate failure for" for two of them, and this one "Can't connect to mailbox: Can not authenticate to POP3 server" for the third.

Any idea ?
I will try with pop3 scripts.

I have changed the script maillist.php to add, line 122, the string '/novalidate-cert' like for ssl mode.
So, the line 122 is now
$flags = '/novalidate-cert';
It was for the case "unsecure pop3 protocol".

And now, it works with the 2 first mailboxes.
I think, for the third, it would be a misconfiguration.
And my mailing-lists messages are now in the forum web, whaouh !!!!

Very nice Smile
