Apparently, MailBoxer must be configured a little differently for qmail:


Following their advice, I created the following file:

server167# vi /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-rejoice
rejoice: "| smtp2zope.py 20000"

where "rejoice" is the name of the list, the IP and port are correct, "rejoice.2012.vi" is the folder and "rejoice" the instance of MailBoxer.
Incidentally, surfing to that URL throws an error (see below).

I have put a copy of smtp2zope.py here:


Is that correct?

My mailto is
where "mail" is the smtp and "rejoice.2012.vi" is the URL.
I try subscribing by sending an email to that address with "subscribe" in the subject, but I collect it in the email box I set up for that address in vpopmail. I have also tried this without said mailbox in vpopmail, but then the email just bounces. Either way, nothing ever ends up in the "maillist", nor do I ever get an email telling me I've been subscribed. What am I doing wrong?

PS. Error from surfing to
