Hi Tom,

   See if the problem is the same problem that has been fixed in

-> hypernews v1.11-slac-69 (20070114 terryh)
        o If joinSF == 0, calls printNV with flag 1 so that variable
          $editMemberURL and $changeMemberURL won't be set to empty.
          Symptom: in the configuration of Atlas the joinSF is set to 0 so that
          no one can register new member. But when user clicked "Member Info"
          followed by "Inquire" to inquire membership, they saw error message:
          "[form-2.1] This script needs to be called from a FORM, using method
          POST." This problem is fixed by this patch.

   You may want to try the latest version v1.11-slac-75. There is a patch
that fixed the problem where user cannot post messages via email. It also
supports NFS better because most of the task of mail server is now moved
to the apache side (thus does not need to share files).
