I am having problems in setting up my RForum to post messages via email.

I have read Linking a Forum to a Mailing List and it helped a lot. I can
post messages  in RForum and it will auto-mail it to my mailing list
(googlegroups). The problem I have right now is how can I post messages
from my email to RForum.

This is what I have done so far
1. updated list_address of forums table, list_address =
2. updated site.rb:
   :deliver_mail => true,
   :bounce_address => '', where
is member of
3. Run: ruby scipt/process_mail Maildir 1, where Maildir is the location
of emails in my domain

When I run the process_mail, it goes thru the inbox, sent and thrash
items but it puts 'Skipping File .... ' error.

am i on the right track? i tried different configurations but to no
avail. sorry but i am quite new to this and any help will be greatly
