  • Please do not post support questions directly in the modules forum. Use either the thread of the module that you have questions about or the support forum. The rules are clear on this. Feel free to follow them.
  • Unless you do some work on your own and come with to the point questions, I doubt that this cry for help is going to get you any results.

Cool, at least one more information - seems like you are using "External Phorummail".
Same questions as above though. What is happening and what should happen?
Is your "reply" delivered to that mailaddress at all? Did you check that?

And what kind of reply are we talking about here? A reply from within Phorum through the web interface or a reply via your mail program?

I think you need "-m ext_phorummail" and not the full path to the module php file.

Actually, the External Phorummail only uses the scheduled hook, not the external hook, thus you don't need the "-m . . . " argument at all, only the "--scheduled"

Please also confirm that your hosts php location is actually /usr/bin/ and that the php located there is PHP 5. On my Dreamhost site I actually needed this cronjob:
* * * * * cd mysite.com/phorum && /usr/local/php5/bin/php ./script.php --scheduled

Also, you may want to find a way to read any output from the cronjob, which is important if it is not running properly. One method would be to add this line to the top of your crontab which will email any script output:
MAILTO="youremail@yoursite.com"

Hi,
I have installed the mod and I set it up with an email account,
Everything went smooth on the install but I am very new to the cron job idea, I have my site hosted at godaddy and for the cron manager it says you can type it in or hit browse, I hit browse and I went to (temp domain) cdnimports.info/Phorum/mods/ext_phorummail/ext_phorummail.php And I set it for every 5 minutes, The script in godaddy looks like this:
/web/cgi-bin/php5 "$HOME/html/cdnimports/Phorum/mods/ext_phorummail/ext_phorummail.php"

No emails have been imported to the category, I am very new to the whole cron job so please in the easiest terms possible could you explain how to set up my cron. I am trying to have the setup that yahoo groups does.
Thanks a lot!

update:
cd /home/kalos/www/mods/ext_phorummail && /usr/bin/php ./ext_phorummail.php --scheduled > /dev/null is what I have in my cron i tried both pop3 and imap both no luck, the forum does not update

Please see Joes reply again. You don't call the ext_phorummail.php file in the cron, just the script.php (yeah, thats a real name!).
Something like the following from your last lines ...
cd /home/kalos/www/ && /usr/bin/php ./script.php --scheduled

But I don't know if you have a /usr/bin/php from godaddy available - thats something you need to fix with their support.

My fault? or is there a server setting that needs toying with, Thanks again for all the support,

Well the original error message simply tells, that there was no connection possible to the given host on the given port.

Dunno what you are saying with that. Mailing list is supposed to send to a maillist but not for messages received from a mailing list as that would bring you an endless loop.

Okay,
I have it set up like this
Someone post on my forum it sends that post out in an email to my mailing list this comes from email1 and goes to all emails. This currently works it sends an email when someone post something new on the board.
Then the user hits reply and sends there response back to email1
email1 is being monitored by this module and it post those onto the board (works) But mailinglist module does not send an email saying someone posted something but yet it shows up on the board when it comes from this module.
i am trying to set up forum and mailinglist integration
Re: help required in setting up the Phorummail module
April 22, 2010 03:41PM
a user which hits reply should sent to the mailinglist email address which also sends mail to the forum, and not directly to the forum (email1 as it seems).
thats how a mailinglist works.

Hi,
Yes that part is fine, this is what happens:
Ex 1
Post on my forum, 5 seconds later my mailing list receives that post. Works as planned

Ex 2
Send an email to email1 (being monitored by this mod). The post goes on the board but the mailing list does not get notified that someone should posted something like they do in ex1

I am trying to achieve a forum in which users can reply to topics via email (for people at work and mobile users) For them to do this they also need to be sent the post, Am i going about this the right way with this mod?
Re: help required in setting up the Phorummail module
April 22, 2010 03:54PM
Again, no one should send an email directly to email1.
Thats only an address where the mailinglist software sends to.
If someone replies to that previous email he should reply to the mailinglist, so that all other members receive the mail message too. *Additionally* the reply is imported to the forum.

alright,

Is there anyways to modify it so they can reply straight to the email1 than that post goes to the forum board (then gets sent out to the mailing list(this is where it gets stuck because it does not send to mailing list when there imported from email)) then say that user2 gets the message (via email) that user1 sent to email1 than user2 hits reply and it gets sent to email1 which is posted in the topic and people than have the chance to reply via web interface or forum?

Should this be posted in the mod request section?

It seems that every forum is missing this except yahoogroup has this down perfectly

Why aren't you getting that you are doing it wrong?
Use a maillist how its intended to be used.

So like this then:

Messages come from Email2 that were posted on the forum get sent to a bunch of emails using the mailing list module, lets call this list EmailList
Then user1 who received this post wants to send it via email so he sends it to the mailing list .. (meaning he has to copy all the emails into the send to: bar and not hit reply) Part of this EmailList is email1 so it gets picked up and posted to the forum

Is this how it is supposed to be used?
I just figured it would make more sense to the way to do Yahoo does it or is it hat how they do it?
Re: help required in setting up the Phorummail module

No, a mailinglist has *one* address where you send messages to and it automatically resends the message to all subscribers of the mailing list.
The mailing list module is supposed to be used with such a mailinglist software, not sending directly to a lot of users.

Is it normal that every email shows up as a different thread?

No.
