Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
Hi Tom, If the e-mail stays in the mail spool, that means the mail alias is probably not set up properly. Please check the section 5 of INSTALL (copied below). You can get the MIME::Parser (CGI.pm) mentioned in the INSTALL file later. regards, -- Terry Hung - Stanford Linear Accelerator Center phone: 650-926-3618 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org #__________________________________________________________________________ # 5. Setting up the e-mail gateway for a new forum: The HyperNews should be up and running now and user can post messages with the browser. To allow posting messages through e-mail and allow mail distribution, do the following steps in this section. #____________________________________________________________________ # The check list for the e-mail mechanism: Check the following items to enable the e-mail mechanism: #__ The $allowEmailIn = 1 in hnrc. #__ The $mail_admin_password in hnrc is not blank. #__ Use "Member List" from the home page to check that the 'HNMail' account has been set up properly. #__ ask the system admistrator of your machine to install perl module MIME::Parser to process e-mails in MIME format. #____________________________________________________________________ # Adding a forum's e-mail gateway to the database: The following e-mail gateways for each forum must be added to the aliases file ('/usr/lib/aliases' or '.qmail-' or procmail configuration, or similar): #____________________________________________________________ # To set it up yourself If you are setting the forum's e-mail gateway yourself, add the following entries to your local mail system's gateway alias file: #__ aliases.hnews:<forum gateway>: #__ aliases.hnews:Owner-<forum gateway>: <owner of HyperNews> #__ <form gateway>@<pipe server> #__ pipe_option:<forum gateway>@<pipe server>=<path>/.scripts/mail-incoming.pl -f /<forum> For example: aliases.hnews:hn-fusion-Announcement: aliases.hnews:Owner-hn-fusion-Announcement: email@example.com hn-fusion-Announcement@pipe.lists.my.edu pipe_option:firstname.lastname@example.org=/afs/my.edu/site/fusion/.scripts/mail-incoming.pl -f /Announcement #____________________________________________________________ # To be set up by mail master If the forum's e-mail gateway is to be set up by the mail master of you computer system, first check that the @hnMailAnnounce in hnrc has been set with the mail masters' names. When the HyperNews administrator runs Admin/create-forum.pl to create a forum, a request with the forum's e-mail gateway information will be sent to the mail masters listed in @hnMailAnnounce. #____________________________________________________________________ # Completing the e-mail gateway setup: Once the new forum's e-mail gateway aliases have been added, make the following changes to hndocs/<forum>.html,urc to get this forum's e-mail gateway ready: #__ ListAddress: <forum gateway>@<server> #__ Name: <owner name> #___ full name of forum's owner #__ From: <uid> #__ the UID of forum's owner _____________________________________________________________________________ > > I take back half of my previous mail: messages posted to Test forum are > eventually being mailed to user, it just took some time. > > Unfourtunately the other half remains: incoming mail ends in mail spool > and then nothing happens, no debug files are printed and no messages get > posted anywhere.
