Mailbox - m2f - phpBB


#1

Hi,

I have created an email for myself with an associated mailbox, and no forwarding address. I got the information:

erlebach@tangotallahassee.com
"erlebach_tango_mbox" m9696542
0 MB / 50 MB (0%)

Where is the mailbox actually located (physical address). I am trying to get email to this address forwarded to phpBB, using m2f, and I there are various techniques. Ideally, I’d like to stipulate that email to the above address go to a phpBB forum (don’t know how to do this). Alternatively, I can import mail (periodically) from a mail box, but phpBB/m2f asks for a mailbox address.

Thanks for any help. The wiki did not provide me with useful information on this matter

If you’re asking for a file path, then that one is going to be at /home/m9696542 on your server. The server is listed in the Panel when you Manage Users.

M2F allows you to configure it for POP mail retrieval, in which case the wiki covers this. Here’s some reading that should help:

Thanks. My server is edendale, and there is no:

/home/m9696542

on edendale. There is no /home/erlebach/m9696542 on that machine either. In the meantime, I’ll read the documentation you suggested.
