Hello, 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. Thanks, Chris

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.
