Hello All
I am build a website for my Radio Club. www.desitronics.com/cvrs. Thay are using a yahoo reflector at the moment to send messages to the group but keep having problems with the reflector. I have looked around and found FUDForum. I'm not a web developer i'm an engineer. I have set the forum up using CRON with a 15 min
interval between mail checks as advised by the host. This is not vary good. The host is using Exim MTA. Is there anyone who could help me configure FUDForum to use the Exim MTA.

Kind Regards
Desmond Mardle BSc MIEEE

Yes, it's much better to pipe the messages into FUDforum. I haven't done it with Exim before, but this should more or less work:

Edit /etc/valiases/company.com

Assuming that we are creating aliases for the e-mail addresses forum1(at)company(dot)com and forum2(at)company(dot)com, we will create the corresponding entries in the aliases file as follows:

forum1: | /full/path/to/scripts/maillist.php 1
forum2: | /full/path/to/scripts/maillist.php 2

Once the aliases file has been edited and saved, you will have to execute the newaliases command.
