I am making some progress on this but I still have some ways to go.
The FUDForum side of things seems to be working. If I enter
/home/myaccount/fudforum/scripts/maillist.php 2 < FakeEmail.eml
on the command line, the Fake Email gets posted to the forum. Yay!
But, emails sent to the Mailman list still don't make it to the forum.
My .forward.postfix file resides in /home/myaccount and contains the line
And "Filters for mailbox: email@example.com" contains:
"First, forward emails without zxcvbbvcxzzxcvb in the subject to myaccount on hanover and then stop."
And firstname.lastname@example.org has been added as a member to the Mailman list.
But there must still be something wrong. Any ideas?
Just decided to look at your suggested WIKI page http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Email_to_Script
I found this message in a pink box at the top of the page:
NOTE: As of April 2008, tying an email address configured on the "Manage Email" page of the web panel to a shell user is no longer allowed, so the instructions in this section no longer work. (Email addresses that were already tied to shell users have been grandfathered.) What you can do instead is forward email to the shell user, since every shell user appears to implicitly have an email address of the form email@example.com.
Here are instructions on how to forward to a shell user (worked as of 12/23/2010): Shell-linked_E-mail
Could this be the reason for my problems?
