[REBOL] Email setup question Re:

From: christmn::clackamas::ds::adp::com at: 12-Oct-2000 8:45

Depending on where you have REBOL installed and where your cgi resides, the cgi may not be able to read user.r to know where SMTP server is. If the webserver has the REBOL_HOME variable defined in it, then you can can have a user.r in the REBOL_HOME directory. Otherwise you need a user.r file with the network definitions defined in it, resident in the same directory as your cgi scripts for REBOL to read user.r and get its network definitions. If all of this is already done, then I would look at the webserver, possibly check with your Admin group to see if SMTP is turned off by default under cgi or try a simple PERL script to try and send mail to see if it works under other scripting languages. You can also try to force defining the smtp host in the REBOL cgi script with - system/schemes/default/host: "" ----- Original Message ----- From: [Sharriff--Aina--med-iq--de] To: [list--rebol--com] Sent: Thursday, October 12, 2000 7:37 AM Subject: [REBOL] Email setup question Can someone tell me why I get this error when trying to send mail through a CGI form? Sending Email to [sharriff--aina--med-iq--de] ** User Error: No network server for smtp is specified. ** Where: smtp-port: open [scheme: 'smtp] if email? email works from rebol directly though. I deleted the "User.r" to force a new setup, no go. Could it be that it fails because I typed in an IP address instead of a resolved SMTP name?
