Hi,

I've just installed FudForum which seems very fine for us. So i have a big trouble with the mailing list integration.

1) When i create a post one email is sent to mailing list (OK, fine!!!)
2) When a user replies using his personal mailer software, we don't receive any email, so we have no post integrated in FudForum.

We use hmailserver as email server, where the mailing list is.
We have no email account for the mailing list. (because, if we create one, no email sent by fudforum is received by any user)

So we don't understand how FudForum can receive an email if no email account receives the replies from users.

So, how can we do ?

Thank you for your support.

Regards,
Ketchup

The fudforum does not receive e-mails from the user directly, those e-mails need to be fed to it via maillist.php script trigged by procmail or equivalent. This script then imports messages into the forum.

You need to sign up an account to the mailing list and have the e-mail arrive at the server where the FUDforum is located. Then you need to setup procmail or equivalent to parse incoming e-mails and redirect relevant e-mails to fudforum's maillist.php script.
