I have a user that has an older Usenet spool directory of articles that I'd like to get imported into FUDFORUM. Is there a way to do this without having to go through the hassle of setting up INN (et al)?


Thanks...

Yeah, make some sort of a script that will pipe the messages one by one to maillist.php.

I'm new to PHP, have it only compiled as a module for apache, but can try to get the command-line parser installed for this process.

Will maillist.php correctly parse all the news headers et al?


Thank you! Smile

I'll set up a for-next loop and test it out... are there any args to maillist.php (remember, I'm new to PHP, so am a little clueless with it).


Thanks.

I have the mailing list gateway working finally. However, I'm running into a problem with maillist.php not apparently parsing the Usenet headers correctly.

For example, one of the old Usenet posts has this for headers:

Path: news.iii.net!iii2.iii.net!not-for-mail
From: bsmith(at)iii2(dot)iii(dot)net (Bob)
Newsgroups: local.iii
Subject: (ALERT) INTERNET DAY OF PROTEST TUESDAY DECEMBER 12, 1995
Date: 10 Dec 1995 21:07:28 -0500
Organization: iii-net
Lines: 232
Message-ID: <4ag3p0$7qf(at)iii2(dot)iii(dot)net>
NNTP-Posting-Host: iii2.iii.net
X-Newsreader: TIN [version 1.2 PL2]


If I pipe this to maillist.php, it does get posted, but the poster is "Anonymous Coward" which means maillist.php isn't picking up the From: header.

By "pipe" I mean something like this:

$ cat 3232 | /usr/local/apache/htdocs/forum/scripts/maillist.php 1

Not sure if "1" is needed for that method.

It's pretty important that I get this info into the forum for what it's being used for, though.


Thanks,

Forrest
