You have to do this manualy in your database. So either start mysql or sqlite. For example: UPDATE forums SET list_address = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' WHERE id='1'; id in this case is the id of the forum that you want to use for this. * Then you have to start process_mails. Point it to the Maildir you want it to read with the interval (in minutes). ./script/process_mails pathto/Maildir/cur 5 This will then read all the emails addressed to the mailinglist you defined in the forums table. And will sleep for 5 minutes before checking again. If you have left your site.rb untouched. You are good to go. Otherwise you have to make sure that you have something like: # Should the forum send posts to the mailing list # (only if a forum has a list_address) :deliver_mail => true, :bounce_address => 'email@example.com', Have phun!
