Open Source Forwarding/Groups system

P: n/a
Hi

I've been looking for an open-source php script, which I want to tweak
for internal use on a network.

Anyway, regardless, might anyone suggest to me a script capable of
forwarding any emails sent to say gr***@domain.com to a list of other
emails @domain.com
Basically a group mailing list...

A lot of people might argue that this is a 'mailing list' system, but
when looking on sourceforge, I can only find 'one-way' systems - ie.
the mailing list owner can send an email to all members, but individual
members cannot send emails to the rest of the group.

I think GNU Mailer or similar has this function, but I need it to run
on any webhost with only 'cpanel' like access.

Thanks

Why not ask your host what is available? And if they don't have
anything, find a new host. Hosting is too cheap nowadays to worry about it.

You probably won't be able to install anything decent with just CPanel
access unless it comes on the system. And even if you do create your
script you still have to interface it to the email system to pick up the
incoming emails. You'll generally need a cron job to do this.

Thanks Jerry.

However the problem is that I've just switched to this host, who run
their own control panel because they use a distributed architecture...
They are currently still working on a mailing-list application, and it
won't be ready for another 3 months.

Basically I need something that can do the job in the short term - open
the contents of an email inbox via pop, forward all emails in it to
specific individuals.

Cheers

I'd still say switch hosting companies. Hope you didn't pay a year in
advance!

I also don't think I'd use one of thiner home-grown packages. Rather,
I'd want to use one which has been around for a while - dadamail
(formerly mojomail), listserv and majordomo are three I know of.

I use dadamail - but I have my own server so I can set it up any way I
want. But it's been a while, and I don't remember if I really needed
root access or not to get it going. You might check it out -
