  1. #1

    Default Want to use mailer to post to the forum.

    Hi.

    I want to use my mailing program -Thunderbird- to write/read to/from the forum.

    How can I establish that ?

    Let me be naughty. I told you in another thread to read that page. Didn't I?

    Hi
    It did, just change the email address for the account to;
    Code:
    Name: erikja
    Email: erikja@no-mx.forums.opensuse.org
    This will then update your post count etc with the forum software.

    Or:

    Code:
    Name: Erik Jakobsen
    Email: erikja@no-mx.forums.opensuse.org
    This way it looks better on the nntp side, we see the real name
    displayed (or a chosen name), instead of the alias.
