[DeleGate-En] How to reply to an article in the DeleGate forum
22 May 2014 08:17:56 GMT feedback@delegate.org (Yutaka Sato)
The DeleGate Project


In this article, I write a guide for you to send a feedback message
to the forum (to be shared among users and the developer of DeleGate)

STATE

There are open forums for DeleGate available at DeleGate's web site:

  In English: <URL:http://www.delegate.org/mail-lists/delegate-en/>
   forwarded from the entry address <URL:mailto:feedback@delegate.org>

  In Japanese: <URL:http://www.delegate.org/mail-lists/delegate-ja/>
   forwarded from the entry address <URL:mailto:goiken@delegate.org>

PROBLEMS

There is no "mailing-list" from which you can automatically receive
articles of these forums via mail.  It is because maintaining
mailing-lists is a little bit troublesome not by the work for operation
nor maintenance but by the risk of having a large list of personal
E-mail addresses.  Fortunately, giving up mailing-lists is good for
you too because you need not to be suffered from the work of discarding
message by message on DeleGate from your mail box :-).

Instead, you can browse and search whole messages of the forum at the
web site, although the user interface seems antique ;-).
But replying to an article in the forum has problems:

 - you can't cite the original message possibly with attached data.
 - you will want to write a message using your favorite mail tool.

SOLUTION

To solve the problems, I implemented an interface to send an original
message of an article to you by mail (in DeleGate/10.0.0).  You can
do it in the following steps:

(1) open an article in a forum.

(2) push the "Forward" button.

(3) at the first time, get the password for you by mail.

  - push 'Getpass' button in the shown form,
  - fill your E-mail address to receive the password and,
  - copy the hex-decimal number in the shown image to the text area,
  - then push 'Sendpass" button.
  - DeleGate will send the password for you by mail.

(4) forward the original mail to you by mail

  - fill your E-mail and the password in the form, and push 'Sendmail',
  - DeleGate will send the original mail of the article to the E-mail.
  - maybe your browser will kindly remember the combination of
    E-mail:password for the subsequent times.

(5) you will receive the original mail of the article, then reply it.

  - create a reply mail to the mail, then send it.
  - the default recipient of the forwarded mail includes the entry
    address of the forum, your E-mail, and the DeleGate author's
    E-mail, kindly :-)

(6) if your mail is blocked (as a SPAM by Google, the MX of delegate.org)

  - try to send your mail to the mail domain 'AT ml DOT delegate DOT org'
    instead of "@delegate.org".  Your mail will directly reach the
    mail server of DeleGate.ORG escaping Google.

Cheers,
Yutaka
