Hi Tom,

   Thanks for the log! The log did indicate that your e-mail address is a registered member e-mail address. 

   I noticed that for, your registered member
e-mail is but your current e-mail is
So maybe you can change the e-mail to so that the copy of your
message won't be rejected over there. 
(Use's member
info page to make the change.)

   The newest version of HyperNews v1.11-slac-60 provides more debugging 
messages than hypernews1.11-slac-53.tgz. Could you download this version
from to get better debugging
information? Before getting the newest debugging information, I have the 
following suggestions to what might have gone wrong:

   1. Need to change the perl path in fixPerlPath and then run 'make fix'.
      Without proper perl path in the header of, the mail
      part won't work properly.

   2. The log file indicates that your site does not have the
      for perl. This won't cripple the mail, but the program won't be able to
      parse the MIME formatted email properly. So you may want to get
      the module (the Parser for MIME) later.

   3. The password of mail sever HNMail in hnrc does not match the one
      in the "member info" page for HNMail. You can use the "member info"
      page to check this.

   4. The mail alias has not been set up. See section 5 of the INSTALL file.
      But since you are getting the mail-incoming log, this is probably
      not the case.
   5. Check the apeche server's log (e.g /opt/apache/logs/error_log) to
      see if there are other errors that aborted the program.
