|Is there necessary to create a mailbox for each forum ?
or is there a thing to do to launch a daemon ?
On "cig.no-ip.org" my mail run perfectly " POP, SMTP and web mail "
my forums run normaly but the automatic mail to subscibers.
What have I forgot ?

|The mails generation in the forum is implemented in 'post_message' function
in module /pliant/appli/forum.pli,
then mails forwarding is implemented through calling 'forward_mail' function
in module /pliant/protocol/smtp/forward.pli from 'post_message' and 'forward_forum'
in module /pliant/appli/forum.pli
All the forum mails should be stored in
where 'xxx' is the ID of the forum, so you can look there to see what really

|Thanks, I've found the solution in the /pliant_data/pliant/forum/xxx/out/ file,
it was a keyboard lapsus, not wholy visible at the same time in the narrow input place,
can you enlarged the input areas of this page (not urgent)

|In one of my forums, the 'Discribe subscribers list' button informs there are
3 mails pending in the forum out queue. But when I look in the respective
pliant_data/..../out/ directory, there is no file there.

|Looking at the forum code,
the storage area of the forum is defined in 'Path' field of the forum
and mails are stored in the 'out' subdirectory.

|In my forum path, I have
data:/pliant/forum/Winter_2005_CPS125_N03 and N04/
(notice the blank spaces in the name of the forum).
Using Linux, I can see email files in the 'out' directory. But I use my Pliant
server to access the 'out' directory (via 'system Files'), Pliant does not list
me any file in 'out'.
Another question: When a message is posted in a given forum and there are
subscribers to such forum who want to have messages forwarded to them by email,
does Pliant always store a copy of the forwarded message in the 'out' directory,
or only those which are still pending in the forum email forwarding queue?
