New Forum: email system
July 11, 2018 03:27AM
I'm looking at howto's to install discourse, in a fast research looks like it can be a great moving

If, I will probably set the server with "elive superpowers" (instead of a plain useless and bloated blubluntu container), but in any of the cases, I'm worried about the email thing, so emails should be sent from the own server (it can work as the previous tests, but all of the emails from elivelinux.org domain goes to spam, in gmail/hotmail/everywhere) by default, so this can be a problem...

So the question is, what about using external services? I have found in one of these howto's a service that looks very good, too good to be true? 150k emails per month (5k per day)? for free? really??? [elasticemail.com] eyepoping

I don't think you need to use an external service for your emails.

That emails comes from the Forum Tool's server or not, it's a question of properly setup DNS, SPF and all that sh... So if we setup everything properly, your forum tool will be able to notify people about forums Replies, post etc.

The more you're getting use to it, you'll discourse, everything that is needed, does work well for the end user ( upload a file, quote, etc etc)

I come from the BBS world ( I was a sysop, system operator during several years of my life for living LOL yes, those guys in a basement with a lot of phones lines and modems) and I have tried several tool and discourse, if we can me it work well, will give a 2018 look to your project

Just hope it's not too much of a headache to make it work..

As for contributing, moderator of forums, I would love to do that... Sometime I am not very busy during month, sometime more (because of work) and you can't count on me... The golden rule will just be common sense rules for members : respect each other and behave like gentlemen.
