I put up a rforum server as a testbed for our college's virtual reality
/ digital logic / programmers wanting to mess around lab.  I was going
through the installation page from the main rforum site, and I got to
step 8.  after registering and giving myself admin priviledges, I waited
for the confirmation email....and waited...and waited.  I now believe
that the email did not send correctly.  I've checked my email address,
and it's correct.  Is there an external program that I need that rforum
uses as a mail backend, or is there something else that i'm missing?
Any help would be appreciated.

A little clarification on top of that:

I'm running the gzipped package of rforum on ruby 1.8.4, on a Gentoo
Linux machine, kernel 2.6.15.  Hope that helps people.

You need a working MTA like Postfix or Qmail.
