Subject mailing list:mails going to error folder
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2004 17:02:18 GMT
I am new to James and am impressed with how easy it was to setup everything and get going.
 I am evaluating it to use in our application. One of our requirements is: mailing list.

I am able to create and subscribe to it. But to test the distribution, when I send mails to

the mailing list, all the mails seem to be going to the error folder. I have searched the

mailing lists and came across one person who had this issue but there are no replies.
 Thanks in advance and sorry if it is too trivial.

I followed the instruction is the James doc and news groups:
1) added the following in config.xml , in the root processor block
<mailet match="CommandForListserv=james@localhost"




<mailet match="RecipientIs=james@localhost" class="AvalonListserv"> 

    <membersonly> false </membersonly> 

    <attachmentsallowed> true </attachmentsallowed>

    <replytolist> true </replytolist> 




2) added a repository name (for filesystem) in the users-store block

<repository name="list-james"
    <destination URL="file://var/lists/list-james/"/>
</repository> I am able to subscribe to the list(3 users like red@localhost, blue@localhost,
green@localhost) and I can see list-james folder getting created under /var/lists/ But when
I test by sending a mail to james@localhost, I expected the test mail in the inboxes of the
3 users, instead they  are all in the /var/mail/error folder. Am I missing a step? Is the
sender address james@localhost corect? Should I create  a separate account for james@locahost
or the entries in config.xml are sufficient?Any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks,SM
