Has anybody got the FUDforum integration to an ezmlm mailing list working?

I'm pretty stuck. I think I did everything ok but it isn't working and I'm not getting any errors.

Edit: Ok, if I post to the forum, it does get emailed to the mailing list. It just doesn't post emails sent to the list to the forum.

Thanks

Joe

Are you using procmail or something else to "pipe" messages into the forum?

That is what I'm missing for sure. I don't know if my host uses procmail. Is that something I could install on my site?

Sorry for the stupidity but this is pretty new stuff for me.

Thanks

Procmail is likely to be already installed, if it is not you can install it yourself. Procmail is essentially a mail mangling tool that sits in your account and filters incomming mail. So you'd use it to "trigger" on certain mail headers and make the message be piped to maillist.php script.

So should I create a procmail.rc to pipe the messages to the forum?

It turns out that procmail isn't available to me. I do have sendmail however. Can I do the email pipe usind sendmail rather then procmail?

Thanks

Well, I've searching and trying to find out what I need to do exactly and I can't seem to get it working.

I've tried putting *many* variations of things in my .forward file but nothing is happening. I've seen conflicting things on the syntax and don't know where to look for possible errors.

My latest .forward file looks like this:

"| /usr/local/bin/php -q hsphere/local/home/fobitz/FUDforum/scripts/maillist.php 1"

If anyone can offer any suggestions I would be greatful.

Thanks

That looks good, but you probably want to specify the FULL path to the maillist.php script.

I'll likely change it as you suggest but I've been in contact w/ support from my web hosting company and they are now telling me that the mail servers are separate machines from the web servers and you just can't pipe email into a script like that.

I'm investigating other options but am not optimistic.

Thanks

You can always write a small pop3 or imap based script that would connect to the mail server via one of those protocols and retrieve message from it. By using cron you can automate this process.
