Does Gossamer Mail integrate with Gossamer Forum?
Hi does Gossamer Mail integrate with Gossamer Forum?

I have read about Auth_vbulletin plugins and such, but have seen no mention of auth for Gforum.

I currently have 1,000 users using everyone.net email and I have an installed Gforum with 4,800 users.

I have a red hat 7.2 dedicated server.

Thanks

Hi,

You can use Gossamer Community to share a user database between the Gossamer Forum and Gossamer Mail. It's currently in beta, but will work well for Gossamer Forum and Gossamer Mail assuming they are both on the same domain name.

Cheers,

Alex

Hi, I purchased GMail and GForum.

I have all this installed on the same domain and can't get Community working with GMail. Authentication with GMail does not work.

Can you give some pointers on how?

I posted about this in Community forum as well, I would appreciate any help.

Thanks

Mike

Hi Alex,

In the pages on Gossamer Mail, we can read:
  • "Auth_VBulletin
    Gossamer Threads Inc. - 2002-04-29
    This plugin will integrate vBulletin into Gossamer Mail. Instantly provides all your vBulletin users with free email, and lets them move between vBulletin and Gossamer Mail seamlessly. Now supports giving emails to all users, or only vBulletin users in specified groups!"


  • It there a similar plugin what does the same thing with Gossamer Forum (supporting specified groups from Gossamer Forum)? Since there is already a payment feature in Gforum which works with custom groups, it would be really great to be able to give emails accounts only the users who paid a fee (throw Gforum).

    If there is not that kind of plugin for your own forum, does the Community plugin allow to do that (give emails only to specified groups of Gforum)?

    Thank you very much! Sorry for my poor english...

    Hi,

    If you could submit a support ticket with the access information to your server and the installations of Gossamer Community and Gossamer Mail, we can set this up for you.

    Hi Francois,

    Yes, I do believe that we could do this with a small modification to Community.

    Can you please contact me directly via email and we can talk about the specifics? It's just jack@ our domain name.

    Jack.

    I made a plugin Auth_GForum to allow my GForum users to login to GMail with one click from the forum header menu.
    I modified the Auth_VBulletin plugin made by Scott Beck to work with GForum. I tried to use Community but could not get it to work correctly (because it is still beta), so I made my own solution (Auth_GForum) instead. This plugin installs in GMail and uses an authentication hook.
    Read my post about it here:
